Working in partnership with M.F. McHugh Schools, Crossroads operates five classrooms in Frank Ryan Catholic Intermediate School, providing a combination of education and treatment for children who need additional skills to function successfully in a regular school setting.
Each child is assigned a primary case worker. Depending on the child’s needs, staff will help him or her to develop social skills, manage problem behaviour or learn how to solve problems, and/or provide more intensive treatment for serious anxiety and other mental health problems. Caregiver skills training or family therapy may be combined with this program.
The goal of Day Treatment is to help the child develop the skills to function successfully so that they can return to their regular classroom. The family is a critical part of the treatment process.
Referrals are made through the school boards. Caregivers who believe their child would benefit from this program should contact the principal of their child’s school
