At a Glance.
For families who need more intensive support for their child, we combine day school services with residential living in our on-campus residence or one of our community-based homes.
The decision to move a child to a residential program can be a difficult one for families. Our staff work diligently to address the concerns of families before, during, and after a move. We create a home-away-from-home that is safe and nurturing, while encouraging students and their families to maintain a strong connection with regular phone calls and visits.
Every student’s residential experience is unique and personalized. It focuses on behavioral, social, and independent skills development, and addresses each child’s medical and rehabilitative needs. School and residential staff work together to coordinate students’ IEP goals.
Much effort goes into finding an appropriate residential placement for each child. We base our decisions on age and interests, gender, and skill and developmental levels. During our students’ first few weeks in their new home, we look to parents and guardians to guide us in how to best meet their needs.
