Day Treatment in Schools

How Does It Work?

The day treatment program serves students of Iredell Statesville Schools ages 5 to 18, with the goal of helping them manage their behaviors so that they can return to a public school setting. The average length of treatment is 1-2 semesters. This program provides students with greater behavioral and therapeutic support by maintaining a balance between educational and therapeutic issues. The program is located at Pressly School in Statesville; the school provides age-appropriate curricula and teaching staff.

Parent participation in team meetings, classroom events, parent education and skill development opportunities are provided to offer support to the entire family.
