A Heart’s Mission is a Virginia-based research and therapeutic respite care provider specializing in helping children, families, and therapists dealing with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). The company has launched a new website featuring original-content articles on RAD.
A Heart’s Mission was founded by Deborah Bobbitt Harris, a RAD expert who has worked with over 300 families and has been a therapeutic foster parent to more than 100 children over the past 20 years. Debbie works with families, teachers, and therapists to develop custom-tailored programs for dealing with and overcoming attachment disorder.
RAD is a severe disorder that affects children who have had difficulty “attaching” to a parent or other primary care provider. The condition is often seen in children who have been adopted or have spent time in foster care systems. Wikipedia described children with RAD as “presumed to have grossly disturbed internal working models of relationships which may lead to interpersonal and behavioral difficulties in later life.”
The company’s new website was developed by Advanced Web and features in-depth information on RAD symptoms and treatment options. They also plan to release original-content articles and blog posts on a regular basis to help families coping with the disease. “We also want to engage the social networking space with a tremendous amount of effort to become a top resource for families and professionals to interact on this issue,” said Harris.
