Latest version.
  • (a)   As outlined by the Association for Ambulatory Behavioral Healthcare (AABH) in the STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES FOR PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION: CHILD AND ADOLESCENT, 2ND EDITION and standards in the MEDICAL PROVIDERS-HOSPITAL SPECIFIC MANUAL, the day treatment program is responsible for formulating an individualized treatment plan which is to be reviewed on a routine basis and revised as needed. The treatment plan must include specific service strategies to deal with the manifest problems; it must have detailed plans to fully integrate the child in the home and community; and it must demonstrate collaboration with the educational system to reintegrate the child into the home school. These efforts should include communication and coordination with the various programs, agencies, parents/guardians and school districts.

A procedure should be in place whereby the teacher(s) and/or other designated representatives of the school are provided the opportunity to communicate recommendations, participate in the planning and decisions for coordination between the educational plan and the treatment plan. The school shall have authority and responsibility for the educational plan.
    (c)   The educational plan shall describe the appropriate curriculum, instructional time, and educational setting based on the individual needs of the child.
