The ability to perform well in school is critical to self-esteem, self-confidence, the acquisition of basic life skills, and the ability to live as independent and productive citizens. Our programs provide targeted academic and behavioral interventions for students of all abilities, for an education that is positive, challenging, and individualized.
Cenpatico Schools offers an educational setting with an unparalleled clinical focus. Each of our programs has ready access to clinical specialists, whose primary function is to provide cognitive-behavioral interventions and services which are highly integrated with, and supportive of, each student’s IEP. We serve as a clinical training environment for student interns who are seeking their master’s degree in various disciplines, including counseling, social work, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and behavioral analysis.
Cenpatico leads the coordination of services for all of the educational needs indicated in a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). We maintain a staff and network of service providers representing all areas of support identified by multi-disciplinary teams. In addition, we provide ongoing evaluation of students’ progress at Cenpatico, which helps us determine whether additional supports and/or services are required for each student’s success. This process supports our pursuit of the ultimate goal – a student’s successful transition and re-integration into a district’s less restrictive learning environment.
