Therapeutic Day Schools

Therapeutic day schools are an extension of the special education schools domain, but with a primary focus on emotional and behavioral supports.

Therapeutic Day SchoolsMore therapeutic schools across the country are accommodating a day student population than in prior years. This is in large part due to the availability of novel community and home-based resources that can be "wrapped around" students to ensure consistency between school, home and beyond.

Therapeutic day school options range from Department of Education listed private schools to collaboratives with a mainstream public school curriculum to alternative approach schools to psychiatric hospital affiliated day schools. Length of stay, funding, and quality vary significantly.

Educational consultants at The Goldberg Center for Educational PlanningTM can guide you in building a framework of the most suitable options in addition to weighing the choice between therapeutic day schools and therapeutic boarding schools.
