Support, Inc.’s nationally accredited Day Treatment program serves children in grades K-12 whose mental health issues have been an obstacle to their access of the curriculum in the regular school setting.
The program is structured according to multi-grade classrooms of 8 – 10 children with two staff members in each classroom. There is also a therapist on staff who conducts group and individual therapy.
The day consists of instruction in social skills, character education, team building, group therapy, and other activities based in cognitive behavior and ecosystemic theory. Attendance is five days a week from 8:00 – 3:00; students spend time each day working on academic assignments provided by teachers at their home school. The goal is to help children develop coping skills and self-management strategies that will enable them to return successfully to their traditional schools.
