Integrated Academic & Education Services
Adolescent clients enrolled in the residential treatment and day treatment programs receive an educational needs assessment at admission and academic education services year-round. Academic education promotes intellectual and social emotional development while helping your teen maintain progress in school.
Educational Assessment: The education director reviews each teen’s academic records, consults with parents and school of enrollment, and completes an educational needs assessment with the adolescent. The educational needs assessment assess the client's academic needs and strengths to help guide the development of an individualized academic plan.
Daily Instruction: Each adolescent in the residential program receives 4.5 academic hours daily to assist staying on track with their assigned curriculum. Student progress will be tracked and communicated with the school of origin and the family.
The education director supports teens with maintaining academic progress in school and assists in developing future academic goals for continued success after treatment by providing an educational discharge plan that includes a re-entry plan based on the student’s needs as well as provides guidance to the parents as the student returns home.
Our certified educators work with each adolescent family and school of enrollment to:
- Create an Individualized Academic Plan. Work on an individual academic plan developed by the school of origin if available. If not, the plan will be created by the education director.
- Maintain Support and Communication. Ensure each client is working toward meeting the requirements to maintain academic progress and meeting academic goals set in the individual academic plan on a daily basis.
- Create a Transition Plan. The purpose of the transition plan is to develop, implement and evaluate an effective model of supports to improve transitions for the client as they exit the residential or day treatment program and return to the school environment. By sharing strategies that helped the client achieve educational goals with the client's teachers and parents, those strategies or accommodations can be employed to promote future success in school.
