Day Treatment

School Based Solutions for Your Child

Our Day Treatment program at Alexander Youth Network is a highly individualized treatment program for children enrolled in grades K-12 who are facing challenges in the classroom due to mental or behavioral health diagnoses.

Our highly structured classroom environment, coupled with multi-sensory techniques and smaller class sizes, allows your child to embrace their own unique talents and learn the skills they need to succeed in school and return to a traditional school program.

Collaborative Care With Family and Caregivers

Our Day Treatment staff works with parents, guardians, teachers, and schools to provide children with a supportive transition into Day Treatment and back into a traditional classroom following treatment through our programming. Alexander also provides group, family, and individual therapy to aid in a child’s therapeutic healing process.

Specialized Features of Day Treatment at Alexander Youth Network:

  • Admission assessments and comprehensive educational testing, including pre-enrollment and post-discharge tests given by a licensed teacher.
  • Year-round programming, even when public school is not in session.
