Emotional Support Classroom

Our Emotional Support Classrooms are housed within traditional schools and are specifically designed to address the emotional and mental health needs of special education students. By weaving our academic instruction with our psychotherapeutic program, we create a holistic and dynamic environment where students are able to learn pro-social skills and then practice them in “real-time” throughout the day in the classroom setting.

The comprehensive program is run by a team of skilled professionals, including a master's level clinician, certified teacher and behavioral specialists. Each program includes:

  • Core curriculum instruction
  • Psychotherapeutic components
  • Wrap-around services and
  • Family based therapy

Typically, students begin 100% within the program and then are transitioned into more and more traditional classes as they progress. Once the student has completed the program and is recommended for transition, an Individualized Transition Plan will be developed, unique to the student's social and academic needs, to ensure proper readjustment and stabilization.
