Preschool for Abuse Survivors Helps Kids Make Progress

Cincinnati Children’s and other local social service organizations created the Therapeutic Interagency Preschool Program (TIP), a refuge for children who have a history of neglect and abuse.

WKRC Local 12 visited TIP during Child Abuse Prevention Month and spoke with Dr. Daniel Nelson, medical director of the Child Psychiatry Unit at Cincinnati Children’s and medical director of TIP.

“The average patient who comes to our program is a year behind a head start child and head start children are already challenged. After one year in our program they’ve caught that other child so they’ve had two years of growth in one year, and in two years they’re a year ahead, so in two years in our program they’re academic progress is four years,” says Dr. Nelson.
