CITE is a strengths-based and holistic home visitation program that partners with families to help children and young adults grow and thrive.

Change is in CITE
Meet Kathryn (Katie) Juenger and Montel, age 6. Katie is a CITE coach who visits with Montel to help him learn new social skills. In this photo, Katie and Montel are using cue cards to practice what might happen in various scenarios. Katie reads the cards to Montel and asks him to identify if the scenario is a big, medium, or small problem. Once the size of the “problem” is known, Katie then asks Montel to imagine different ways to handle the scenario appropriately.
Activities like these help children diagnosed with developmental disabilities learn how to recognize and respond to their emotions. This leads to the development of strong social and life skills that will carry into adulthood. The CITE coaches at Envision partner with families to meet the individualized needs of the children we serve. Says Katie, “It takes a village to raise children and I am just part of that village. I know the disability and [the parent] knows [their] child. [We work] together to help parents put the tools we offer into place.”
