Each of our students has unique therapeutic and behavioral counseling needs. Individual treatment plans are created for each student and include each student, along with a multidisciplinary team of experts including the parent or guardian, the Clinical Director, Masters-level therapists, a clinical psychologist and a child psychiatrist and the student’s following teacher.
Plans are reviewed quarterly and we ensure the student is part of this process.
All Walden School students receive individual therapy, and many are involved in family therapy, as well. Family support is a key component of our clinical services. We work with families to help students successfully return to their home environment, providing ongoing therapy, home visits, training, consultations and parent support groups.
The Family Residence, an on-campus residence located next to Walden School, provides a comfortable location to stay when parents are visiting their child. Because the house is outside the immediate Walden School setting yet close to program staff and facilities, it’s also an ideal place to begin the transitional process of reuniting a resident with his or her family. The family residence accommodates up to 2-5 guests.
