Day Treatment Program

For children who are able to remain in the home but in need of an intensive treatment and educational program, Tennyson Center for Children’s Day Treatment Program is available as an alternative to out-of-home placement. Our therapeutic milieu combines a special education curriculum with consistent structured interventions by behavior specialists. It also helps children with behavioral problems learn new skills that help them to better function in a public school or the community.  A collaborative effort with families and community agencies ensures a successful transition back into that community.
