Theraputic After School Day Treatment
Theraputic After School Day Treatment (TDT) is an intensive after school program for children and adolescents having difficulty managing their socioemotional and/or behavioral problems to the degree that they are in danger of academic failures, repeated suspensions or expulsions, alternative school placements, judicial system involvement, or hurting themselves and/or others. In TDT, there are Qualified Mental Health Professionals assigned to students to guide them in achieving the goals from the individual service plan (ISP). The treatment involves initial and ongoing assessments of mental health problems, and associated interventions and recommendations, collaboration with family members and/or teachers, individual and group counseling, resource linking, and crisis stabilization.
These services are available in elementary and middle school. Treatment goals include (but not limited to) improving self-control, coping skills, self-understanding, social skills, patience, medication compliance, and mood and overall stability. Students enrolled in this program will receive extra support and learn new skills with the goal of having fewer problems with behavior, attendance, and disciplinary issues.
