Education Through a Treatment Process.
LaPorta, John A.
The paper describes Youthdale School, a psychiatric day treatment facility in Ontario, designed to assist the continued functioning or reintegration of disturbed students (8 to 18 years old) in the community. The program operates on the premise that primary responsibility for the students' education is the parents' rather than a governmental agency's. Program aspects include similarities to and differences from regular school programs; program goals; contracts with parents for child care, school attendance, communication with school personnel, and involvement in the child's academic program; and the educational approach which stresses individual and small group instruction.
