Academic Services

LifeSpan provides all clients with licensed teachers. Special Education Due Process is maintained throughout the transition for mental health intervention.

We do request that before your intake, you inform your school district of your intent to enroll your child in LifeSpan's Mental Health Day Treatment Program (YTP).

If your child is currently being served through Special Services (I.E.P.) or #504 Plan and you need help in providing this notice, your social worker, mental health worker, counselor, probation officer, school counselor or classroom teacher may be a good resource.

Academic Criteria
