Should I Enroll My Child in LINC Therapeutic Day School?
At LINC Therapeutic Day School, we serve students with special education needs which include emotional disabilities, specific learning disabilities, other health impairments and autism. We assist students who need academic and behavioral support to be more successful at school.
A Sense of Belonging
All students want a school where they belong. One size does not always fit all, and that’s why Allendale is here. At our therapeutic day school, we offer a smaller, structured setting which meets both academic and therapeutic needs. The foundation of our therapeutic approach is Allendale’s REStArT Treatment Model. The components of our treatment model are infused throughout our school day. A critical component of this model is focusing on the alliance with youth and their families to reach educational success.
Therapeutic Day School Classroom Size/Ratios
Our therapeutic day school classrooms have up to 10 students with one teacher and one or two Teacher Assistants. All of our staff receive on-going clinical training in the REStArT Model and are certified in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention.
