Day School Pittsburgh
The Day School Pittsburgh is an Approved Private School and Partial Hospitalization Program with the goal of helping youth with serious emotional disturbances (SED) or behavior problems return to their original schools. Our program consists of 10 classrooms, each with no more than 12 students. A special component of our program are the family liasons who work closely with families, school districts, and other agencies (e.g., mental health, children and youth services, juvenile court) to help the youth be successful. We provide an individualized, strength-based approach to academic and behavioral growth.
Our services help students increase their grades and achievement, reduce disruptive behaviors, develop coping skills, maintain positive relationships, return to their public schools and home communities successfully.
Services provided include:
- Direct instruction
- Academic remediation
- Experiential therapies and education
- School-wide behavior management system
- Individualized positive behavior support plans
- Psychiatric consultation
- Pre-vocational skill development
- Reintegration program
