Educational services at Wyoming Behavioral Institute offer individualized academic plans to help children and adolescents keep up with school during treatment. Certified teachers work with our young patients for up to four hours a day. Our goal is to engage students in the learning process and teach them to cooperate with peers and become independent thinkers.
Our structured residential treatment curriculum includes math, language arts, social studies, P.E. and health. Child and adolescent acute patients use material from their school unless the school district requests our curriculum be used. Individual education requirements are set during admission. Read our educational services brochure and comprehensive school plan for more details.
Conference calls can be scheduled with school officials responsible for student performance (as permitted by information sharing releases). We encourage tours of the hospital and interaction with community representatives, therapists and the education coordinator. We strive to inform school districts of the academic challenges students face before, during and after hospitalization.
