The Ridge School of Montgomery County is housed on the Adventist Behavioral Health campus. The program focuses on building upon young people's strengths to help them learn at their own pace. Because both the therapeutic and academic programs address a child's emotional needs, many of these students are able to experience success in school for the first time. The school utilizes a highly structured behavior management system to help them become thriving members of the classroom and the community. The Program components include: social work support, psycho educational assessments, small classes for more individual instruction, alternative structured classrooms, multi-disciplinary treatment team approach, crisis management and intramural sports.
Individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, speech and language pathologists.
