Our highly-specialized intensive residential programs provide 24-hour care to a broad spectrum of girls and boys, ages 8-18 with IQs of 50 and above.
Prior to admission, many boys and girls experience behavioral problems at home, school or in the community. Often, these problems cross over to other areas and involve conflict with parents, siblings, teachers, classmates, friends and neighbors. We address problematic behaviors while simultaneously focusing on a child's clinical and educational needs. In order to experience success, we teach and encourage our patients to learn to self-regulate and self-manage their own behaviors. This practice is in preparation for life in the home community, also known as the real world. Part of the process involves learning to replace old behaviors with new, more healthy and effective ways of functioning within the family, neighborhood, school and other areas of life.
