When In-District Special Education Services are Not Enough

Boarding and Residential Programs for Special Needs Children, Adolescents and Young Adults

The decision to place a child in an out-of-district residential program usually comes after much deliberation and after many attempts are made to continue a child in the home school.  This presentation will describe the types of residential educational and therapeutic treatment schools and programs that serve the needs of children, adolescents and young adults who have learning, developmental, psychiatric and/or substance abuse problems. Working with parents to support this placement will be discussed. The placement advising services of a Placement Consultant can help the family and the school by facilitating this, often, highly emotionally charged process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the major types of residential programs serving children, adolescents, and young adults.
  • Understand the role of the Placement Consultant in advising families about residential schools and treatment programs.
  • Develop increased awareness of best practices, quality control and ethical issues in the field of Placement Consulting
