RFS Behavioral Health's Special Education Program is an extensive level of school and community-based mental health services. The program breaks down barriers to effective learning and works directly with your child's teachers, school counselors, and psychologists to address the needs of special education students. It promotes early intervention by trained mental health clinicians that gives the student the best opportunity to redirect problematic behaviors so they can return to a traditional classroom setting.

The Special Education Program is designed to coordinate and bridge the gap between students, parents, and the school by allowing real-time intervention based on a collaborative approach. Services are provided year-round, including during school breaks, continuous access, after-hour crisis support, integrated extra-curricular activities, and school and community involvement.
