Our Program​​

Community Integration:  Youth attend concerts, plays, sports events, swim at local hot springs pools, visit local museums including the dinosaur museum, eat at restaurants, attend community events, and go on local and statewide field trips.  These events/activities help the students to generalize skills they have learned and to prepare them for transitioning back to a home, local school district, and community.  The NW BOCES team strives to assist youth to be successful in the least restrictive environment.  

Behavior Program Componenets:  Increase self-control and cooperation; adaptive interventions for co-exiting conditions such as ADHD, ODD, OCD, PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, victims of abuse, aggression, excessive fears, anger, poor social skills, lack of trust, and daily living skills.

Positive reinforcement through a response cost system and progress monitoring.  Token economy and Level Systems

A continuum of care for the "whole child" which includes an Individualized Treatment Plan in the least restrictive environment with 24-hour supervision.
