OUTPATIENT CHILD AND ADOLESCENT SERVICES
It is the philosophy of Wabash Valley Alliance that children be treated
on an outpatient basis whenever possible. In support of this philosophy,
Wabash Valley Alliance branch centers offer innovative approaches to the
outpatient treatment of the specific needs of the child or adolescent.
The services include family therapy, diagnosis and evaluation, group therapy,
biofeedback, individual psychotherapy, play therapy, psychological evaluation,
psychiatric consultation, a six-week drug/alcohol division program, Children
of Alcoholics Group, Child Divorce Adjustment Group, Case Management services,
and workshops on suicide, abuse, and stress management.
THE LEARNING CENTER
The Learning Center for disabled and emotionally handicapped children
and adolescents provides observation and diagnosis in a highly structured
school program. The Learning Center is a special education program operated
jointly by the Greater
Lafayette Area Special Services (GLASS) and Wabash Valley Outpatient
Services since 1975. The Learning Center provides specialized services
to children who are severely handicapped because of emotional, behavioral,
or learning problems. An intensive short-term
program requiring the child or adolescent to attend during school hours,
the Learning Center provides certified special education teachers, individualized
educational programs, and the clinical services of the Wabash Valley Alliance staff. A school coordinator interacts closely with the Learning
Center to ensure efficient use of services.
