Behavioral Institute School Refusal Program, Great Neck , NY (Long Island) Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient

Their School Refusal Program offers intensive outpatient treatment for children and adolescents who are struggling with academic attendance due to a variety of factors. They have seen that the intensive programs work better than weekly sessions for many individuals. The program emphasizes individual rather than group treatment. This one-on-one care allows our clinicians to meet each person's unique treatment needs and goals. 

An intensive program may be recommended to those who have tried individual therapy in the past and did not attain their goals. In addition, it may be recommended for those who are severely struggling to function in their daily life, such as interference with attending school and work or are having difficulty caring for themselves or their homes. Others may need to achieve their goals during a set time period in order to return to their daily life; for example, students who want to start or return to school, 

Bio Behavioral Institute’s School Refusal Program is designed to help children and adolescents who struggle to attend school on a regular basis. We provide a comprehensive evaluation process to determine the underlying cause or the child’s refusal to go to school, whether it may be contamination fears, separation anxiety, embarrassment of tics, or a fear of vomiting, to name a few.
