Each member of our therapeutic staff have a wide array of experience working with children and adolescents in the home, school, and community settings. Our Program Therapists maintain regular contact with parents/guardians, outside therapeutic consultants, and support services. Our weekly therapeutic program for students encompasses:
- Group counseling
- Individual counseling
- Program Therapists collaborate with teachers in the classroom to problem solve and address student needs.
- Collecting data that can help shape functional behavioral analysis and behavior intervention plans.
Group counseling that takes place within the classroom focuses on a number of areas that address specific classroom needs and general topics such as anger management, social skills, coping skills, empathy, and vocational preparation.
Parkland utilizes a model called Circle of Courage ™ throughout our program. This model focuses on positive youth development based on the principles of belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity.
