Referral Process

Referrals to the Dinosaur Programme must come through the Bay of Plenty DHB Infant, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Team.


The Dinosaur Treatment Programme works with children with conduct problems, ADHD and internalizing problems. It is delivered in 2-hour weekly small group sessions (6 children per group) for 18-22 weeks. Ideally, it is offered in conjunction with the 2-hour weekly parenting programme group sessions so parents have an opportunity to foster their children's learning in Dinosaur School in their interactions with them at home.
