The PATH Program at UT Physicians is a unique day treatment program designed to meet the needs of children and adolescents with complex medical illnesses and associated emotional/behavioral challenges. Participants in the program may have diabetes, asthma, gastrointestinal illness, seizures, chronic pain, medically unexplained physical symptoms, or other health problems that limit their full potential. For many PATH patients, traditional clinic and hospital care have not been able to meet all of their needs, resulting in repeated outpatient visits and hospitalizations. These children and their families often experience impairment in functioning at home, school, and other aspects of daily life.
The PATH Program takes a family-based, integrated care approach to helping children and their caregivers learn to manage symptoms more adaptively, and to promote a return to age-appropriate functioning and activity. Our multidisciplinary team is made up of the following professionals: a pediatrician or family nurse practitioner, specialized nurses, a psychiatrist, psychologists, therapists, recreational therapists, a case manager, and a teacher. Our team works closely with outside providers, whenever needed, to comprehensively evaluate and develop individualized treatment and after-care transition plans for each patient. Patients in the PATH Program have access to many services within the UT Physicians and Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital systems, including consultation and coordination with pediatric subspecialists.
We provide intensive, evidence-based interventions aimed at helping children achieve their highest potential level of functioning and quality of life. Participants attend the program five days a week (Monday through Friday), typically for four to five weeks. Program hours mimic a typical school day, with participants arriving at 7:30-8:00 AM and leaving at 3:00 PM. Breakfast and lunch are served each day.
In addition to intensive individual, group, and milieu-based therapies, participants also receive 90 minutes of educational programming each day, coordinated with their home school with a goal of maintaining academic progress. Parents and caregivers are a crucial part of each child’s development. Their involvement in the program includes multifamily group therapy, meetings with our health care team, nursing and nutrition education sessions.
