Since January 2007, we have established a successful reputation for working with students who are socially and emotionally as well as learning disabled among the Lehigh, Northampton and Monroe County School Districts. We provide a milieu in which the interdisciplinary application of the latest accommodations, adaptations, and technologies provides the proper approach, techniques, and atmosphere necessary to best facilitate the needs of special and non-classified students with issues ranging from: Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyper-active Disorder, Bi-polar Mood Swing Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, to School Avoidance, Work Avoidance, and Dyslexia to name the most common few.

Our staff of eleven highly trained professionals includes a Master's level Behavior Therapist, three Master's level Special Education teachers and one Special Education teacher highly qualified in Language Arts and Science and dually certified in the teaching of Socially and Emotionally disturbed as well as Learning Disabled students, and other teachers, counselors and administrators using the latest and most technologically advanced equipment to meet the students' needs on a group as well as individual basis in and out of the classroom with the lowest possible student to staff ratio.

In 2009, we added a Counseling Intensive program for students the remediation of whose personal issues temporarily takes precedence and priority over their immediate academic goals thereby preventing them from focusing entirely, for the time-being, on their schoolwork and functioning in the classroom. An eclectic approach is taken to meet the immediate individual counseling needs of the struggling student on an ad hoc basis to better help him/her employ the coping strategies and behavior remediation techniques developed and put in place by the child study team, other outside agencies, or both. Upon completion of this program, students are titrated into our Academic Intensive Program, which is just what the name implies. From there, the goal can be reintegration back to the mainstream or special populations of the individual sending districts, work-release, technical skills training with job-placement available, graduation, or placement into our new Credit Recovery Program.
