Bridges Program


The Bridges Program at the Homewood Center is a middle and high public separate day, therapeutic, special education program. It features small classes, specialized, differentiated instruction, increased focus and attention on SEL and executive function skill development, the provision of therapeutic and counseling services in multiple formats, clinically trained interventionists, and intensive staffing ratios. The program is designed for students whose most prominent struggles are understood to be the result of psychiatric conditions, internal psychological states like anxiety or depression, and/or neurochemical/neuroanatomical idiosyncrasies, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders.  What all students typically have in common are deficits in social skills and underdeveloped scholastic and intrapersonal coping strategies, which adversely impact educational, emotional and functional performance.
