Innovative community-based programming to support students in acquiring the necessary skills for competitive employment and post-secondary options. Services include:
EASTCONN operates two clinical day treatment programs in Northeastern Connecticut: Northeast Regional Program (NRP) in Putnam and Educational and Vocational Center (EVC) in Columbia.
Programs are designed for students who need a highly structured, supportive, therapeutic environment in order to achieve academic and behavioral success. The programs emphasize supporting students in acquiring the academic, social, emotional and behavioral skills necessary to successfully return to their local public schools or a less restrictive environment, and combine individualized instruction with a multimodal approach and high-interest materials to maximize learning.
Members of our multidisciplinary team including psychologists and BCBAs are also available to consult with districts to assess program or district-wide needs, with the goal of building in-district capacity to develop and support student programs in their home schools/communities.
