RTC Waiver Program Research and Evaluation: Study 3

School Transition Program

The purpose of the School Transition Program is to develop, implement and evaluate an effective model of supports to improve transitions for children and youth as they exit intensive psychiatric settings, specifically inpatient and day hospital settings, and return to the school environment. The immediate outcome includes improved stabilization during the transition process through the provision of enhanced supports to the children/youth and families, while longer-term outcomes include reduced risk of readmission and reduced costs associated with restrictive psychiatric placements.
