Day Treatment for Children and Adolescents

A child and adolescent day treatment program is operated in conjunction with the local school board through a contractual agreement. The program provides clinical services to children experiencing severe emotional programs in the home, community or school resulting in poor adjustment and a need for more intensive therapeutic services not provided in a regular school setting. This is a short-term intervention for children primarily in grades 4 through 8 experiencing emotional and adjustment problems. Parents and guardians commit to involvement in treatment prior to the child or adolescent's admission.
