Children and adolescents considered for this program demonstrate a mental, behavioral or emotional illness resulting in significant functional impairments in major life activities that has become increasingly disabling over time and require frequent supportive and intensive interventions.

Effective interventions implemented by GYG’s Therapeutic Day Treatment clinical staff will help to improve academic success by reducing problematic behaviors displayed during the school day. GYG staff will also be available to addressed behavioral disruptions without interrupting the class to address one child’s acting out. An immediate intervention prior to school and after school, gives the child the best opportunity to redirect problem behavior so he or she can return to learning while protecting the learning environment for their classmates.
