HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley: Partial Hospital Program
One Teacher for Adolescents Ages 13-18
“The fact that I’ve been told that 100% of our kids have their school work is amazing and deninitely shows that there’s an improvement and things are successful.”
Prior to partnering with LearnWell, Health Alliance used a NY state agency for its education program. It was not a good fit for the patients or staff and many parent complaints were received. The program lacked appropriate support and the teacher was ineffective at managing and maintaining the classroom. In addition, the teacher delegated tasks, like school work calls, to the clinical staff when they were her responsibility.
The director was ready for a change and gave LearnWell a call. Health Alliance now has a program that has been customized to meet the needs of the patients and staff, as well as the unique changes of the environment. The staff were involved in the hiring process and were able to help select the teacher that would become a part of their team. In the classroom, the kids are focused and working on their own school work. Learn Well’s teacher has demonstrated better effectiveness in managing the classroom. The administration was also impressed with the increased level of oversight and communication from Learn Well. They feel supported and the transition has been a success.
“I’m just going to call because it can’t hurt to just give it a chance and see what it is and it looks really proffessional, so why not. So I called [Learnwell] and that was it.”
