Treatment Approach

The Glenholme School provides individualized services that are effective and accountable, and based in positive approaches. The program utilizes principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavior Supports to help students accomplish their goals, and meet their needs in a socially acceptable manner, while building upon each student’s unique strengths, talents and interests.

Vast amounts of research guide and support our treatment approaches for addressing the behaviors and skill development needs of our students. Every adult at The Glenholme School implements the Positive Behavior Support model with the students. All of our boarding faculty hold college degrees, and are trained in delivery of the Positive Behavior Support model, thus a child is in receipt of treatment at all times. A Positive Behavior Support model is therefore not only highly effective, but it is also efficient, considering that in other models of treatment, the clinician is viewed as the sole provider of treatment, indicating that a child is only in receipt of treatment services for a few hours per week.
