Birchwood Program

The Birchwood School, located in Rockland County, New York, is in a suburb of New York City, and is a public school facility of the Clarkstown Central School District. It is a day school providing education using the therapeutic milieu. The school provides a highly structured and individualized school program of remediation and therapeutic rehabilitation. The Birchwood School is for students ages five through twenty-one, whose disabilities require a special educational setting and related services to meet their unique management, academic, physical and social needs.

Birchwood creates a supportive, reassuring environment for school-aged children having significant emotional, behavioral and learning problems. It provides an environment which responds to a child's needs with compassion, understanding and guidance. The school provides a psychotherapeutic approach for the child both in school and at home. At Birchwood, students have the opportunity to succeed by allowing them to proceed at their own rate. Students know they can turn to caring people for help in dealing with the many challenges they will meet in their everyday lives within their home, school and community.

The Birchwood program has a fully accredited staff of specialists in both clinical and special education disciplines who work to effectively integrate educational and clinical services. Birchwood's goal is to prepare students to return to an appropriate program provided by their home school district. Tuition for students attending Birchwood is paid for by their home school districts.
