School Based Services

SchoolBased

Your Complete Connection

St. Aloysius provides a variety of School–Based Services for special needs children within Hamilton County. We are committed to providing a full continuum of care to the clients we serve. Our School–Based model provides the highest level of collaboration in the least restrictive setting. Each child is provided a therapist, who can assess the needs of the child and make additional referrals as needed. Family therapy and involvement is an integral part of the child’s treatment program goals, interventions and can greatly assist with their success.

Our Comprehensive Approach

When a child or adolescent is having difficulty maintaining grades, managing their mood or behavior, or is working through a mental health diagnosis, a referral is made to the St. Aloysius School–Based Therapist who will then carefully evaluate that student’s needs.

Our treatment programs are centered around a collaborative team approach that focuses on the youth and family as the keys to success. As part of this
approach, the parent or guardian has the ability to personally decide who will be on the child’s treatment team.

Our skilled School–Based Therapists provide crisis intervention, treatment, resources, collaboration and advocacy
for youth, families and the schools. Sessions are conducted on a weekly
basis in a safe and confidential environment in your child’s school.
