Communication and collaboration are keys to keeping kids on track in schools.

Supporting the academic, social and emotional learning of students is a priority for any school district. Rogers hospital collaborates with many districts in order to offer expanded resources to struggling students. This partnership combines the experience and expertise of Rogers Child and Adolescent Day Treatment staff with an academic tutoring environment. This synergistic approach provides students with the extra attention they may need to stay on track in school.

How Does it Work

Typically teachers, counselors or other school staff will determine the eligibility of the student’s participation in Roger’s day treatment program. Our team work with school staff to ensure an academic plan for each student enrolled in the program is followed.

"We can help kids realize that their behaviors, thinking, and emotions have consequences – it makes a tremendous difference in their academic performance," states, a child and adolescent psychologist with Rogers Memorial. "The therapy we provide teaches them techniques to give them more control over feelings that interfere with good academic performance and school conduct, and to develop more healthy coping strategies."

The Benefit?

By providing access to services for students and families is at a single location, the transition between day treatment and a school is easier. In this supportive environment, targeted interventions become more consistent and timely, allowing each professional to focus on what they do best. Each professional’s expertise, whether it is teaching or child psychiatry, is magnified so children reap the benefits of both learning and day treatment. In working together we produce far better results for both our and our children’s futures.

Schools around the country are trending towards more collaborative and unique environments. They realize that early identification and treatment is more powerful in assisting students with mental health issues and/or problems at home.
