Youth & Family Services


SAE’s experts in the field of youth and family services are steeped in the best practices and evidence-based practices related to youth-development, risk-and-resiliency, early childhood education, including Head Start, the child welfare system, family systems work, school-based services, as well as issues surrounding specialized youth populations, including those who are homeless, those aging out of the foster care system, and those who identify as LGBTQ.

Youth and family work increasingly requires access to the behavioral health and health care fields that so prominently impact individuals striving to succeed in the face of multiple risk factors. SAE’s unique ability to combine innovative best practices in the field with practical implementation strategies ensures that frontline staff are continually engaged in the process of change designed to help providers achieve better outcomes for the children, youth, and families that they serve.



As a tool for managing population health, telehealth has tremendous potential for transforming the healthcare industry and improving quality outcomes. Specifically, in behavioral health, telecommunication technologies can serve to address the national shortage of qualified providers and help achieve integrated care goals. There is a growing body of evidence that supports the use of telehealth in the provision of behavioral health services, especially psychotherapy.  

There are many challenges, however, to adopting and integrating telehealth into a service delivery continuum. Assessing an organization’s readiness for telehealth services and determining the right use case are essential to successful program implementation and sustainability. At SAE & Associates, we understand the benefits and challenges associated with selecting and adoptiong telehealth modalities. We are dedicated to partnering with behavioral health providers to help navigate the complex policy and regulatory landscape while planning and implementing sustainable telehealth program services.
