Program Description : The Arrow Center for Education is a small, nurturing, structured and supportive elementary, middle and high school program that provides special education and clinical services to students who are primarily identified as having an emotional disability. Students with other disabilities may be admitted to the program on a case by case basis. The program follows the Baltimore County Public School curriculum. In addition to the core curriculum, the school offers a variety of electives. Positive behaviors are proactively taught and rewarded to increase students' participation in their school program. A BCBA, placed full time at another Arrow program, is also available to consult as needed. A psychiatrist is available for assessment and medication management at family request.
Related Services : Individual, group, and family clinical therapy are integrated into the program design. Speech and language services, physical therapy, and occupational therapy services are provided through consistent contractors.
