- Some highlights of the Rush Day School include:
- A strong academic program — Curriculum is aligned with the Illinois State Standards and a child’s home school district.
- Certified special education teachers provide individualized and group academic instruction in classrooms of up to eight students. A resource teacher provides additional support for individual students both inside and outside of all classrooms as needed.
- Psychiatric nurses design individualized behavior management plans for each student. They collaborate with child psychiatrists and other physicians regarding diagnosis, medication monitoring and reduction of symptoms.
- Intensive therapeutic services including individual and family therapy, group therapy with an emphasis on social skills development, and parent groups are provided by a professional and experienced clinical team. This includes a licensed clinical psychologist, licensed clinical social workers, and advanced practice nurses.
- A full-time occupational therapist meets individually with children who require services based on their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and consults with the classroom teams. A focus for treatment may include sensory integration.
- We offer art therapy and a wide range of other art programs including music, drama, improvisation and photography as part of a fine arts curriculum.
- A learning disabilities specialist and board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist provide weekly consultations.
