But What About School? Academic Programming at MVTC
Knower Academics, LLC is the exclusive provider of educational programming at Mountain Valley Treatment Center. Their highly skilled educators work closely with residents and their support team to craft customized small-group and one-on-one learning opportunities for our residents during the daily Academic Module. The Academic Module is designed to mimic a classroom environment. Instructors prepare specific lesson plans and activities for each day’s class and partner with clinicians to gradually increase exposure to academic stressors. The Academic Module provides a supportive opportunity to bolster fundamental learning skills at no added cost to the family. Instructors incorporate specific exposure activities, as recommended by clinicians, into the framework of daily lesson plans for residents. For example, if a resident has anxiety related to public speaking, the student may be encouraged to read out loud during literature class and share pieces of writing during community meetings.
Individualized Academics (IA)
Individualized Academics is also available and is customized one-on-one instruction with a qualified teacher. The teacher may connect with the student’s school of origin to help the student stay up to speed in select classes. Additionally, the teacher may partner with the student’s treatment team to address a specific academic concern. IA is recommended if the clinical team has determined that an increased academic focus is an appropriate part of the student’s hierarchy of needs and therapeutic goals. IA programming is offered at an additional cost to the family.
