The Extended Day Treatment is specifically designed to work with latency aged youth (7-13 yrs old, males/females/LGTBQ) who struggle to manage daily life in a regular school environment. Placement in the program is based upon a comprehensive clinical assessment and the Individual Treatment Plan of each youth and their family.
The program is well resourced to support and serve this population and includes a typical school day within normalized classroom settings from September to June, dedicated Child and Family Therapist, 2 dedicated Child and Youth Workers, 2 dedicated Educational Staff (1 Teacher/1 Educational Assistant), access to assistive technology, access to all CMHS clinical resources such as psychiatry and psychology.
