Intensive & Traditional Teaching Family and Treatment Foster Care Programs


General Information
Description of ServiceYouth with emotional and behavioral disorders and learning disabilities often thrive in a teaching family with professional practitioners. These practitioners actually serve as primary treatment facilitators, teaching directly and by example. In Teaching Families throughout the state, youth learn alternative behaviors and everyday living skills necessary for them to eventually live on their own. The Teaching Family approach incorporates individual, group and milieu therapies, as well as psychiatric services, speech therapy, medical and nutritional interventions, and pre-vocational training. The therapeutic environment of the Teaching Family helps these youth modify their behavior so they can return to their own communities or independent living.
