The Treatment and Learning Centers (TLC) serve students with severe behavior/emotional disorders. Self-contained classrooms are located at Humboldt, Kansas, and Effingham - Freshstart. There are also three TLC classrooms located within the Effingham school district. Students from kindergarten through high school are provided services.
Emotional and Behavioral Management
Based upon each child's individualized education program (IEP) a variety of approaches are utilized to provide the student with the opportunity to benefit from his or her education. TLC utilizes several approaches in order to help students achieve their goals. These include positive behavior management strategies such as a tri-level point system with rewards for appropriate behavior, providing a structured and routine environment, individual and group counseling, social work services, implementing therapeutic crisis intervention strategies and systems of support, and individualized academics.
TLC's goal is to teach students functional behavioral skills which will assist the student to return to the the regular class setting as soon as possible.
