Children come to Chileda from across the nation to learn skills to be successful in their home and school environments. With the support of highly trained staff, children in our residential program work on their treatment goals during all waking hours in our structured residential program. Our high student-to-staff ratio provides frequent opportunities for learning in the natural environment. The residential program operates 365 days per year with 24-hour awake staff members.
Upon enrollment, each child is assigned a Treatment Team, which consists of a Case Manager, House Manager, Behavior Specialist, Health & Wellness Care Coordinator, Special Education Teacher, and therapists as outlined in their Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Treatment Plan. The internal Treatment Team works collaboratively with the student, parent/guardians, and social services team to help the student reach their full potential.
