Intensive Learning Treatment

For families traveling long distances or children who might benefit from getting support on a compressed schedule, our team of specialists can provide intensive treatment tailored to a child’s specific educational and learning needs.

Intensive treatment can have a big impact in a short period of time. By accelerating the pace of treatment, children can develop the skills they need to succeed sooner, boosting their learning and their self-confidence, while enhancing their awareness of their strengths and weaknesses.

Our team has expertise in providing intensive reading, writing, and math remediation, as well as intensive skills training for children with executive functioning weaknesses or organizational difficulties.

Multidisciplinary Treatment

Children who have co-occurring mental health or learning disorders can also participate in testing or treatment to address their multiple needs during this program. Every child will have a diagnostic intake evaluation as part of the intensive treatment program and may also be able to arrange neuropsychological testing, psychiatric consultation or consultation with additional specialists as appropriate.

Follow-up Care

Following intensive treatment, Child Mind Institute clinicians work with each family to develop a transition plan for ongoing mental health support. Local families who require active care can elect to continue working with our team, or we can help refer to other treatment providers. For families who have traveled long distances for treatment, our clinicians can aid in connecting to community providers. Our staff may also be available on a time-limited basis for consultation or training for school staff.
