Inpatient Services Educational Therapy

During your child’s stay, he or she will be given an educational specialist who will work with the school district and develop a learning plan.

WellSpan Philhaven provides educational services for children and adolescents in our Inpatient and Day Hospital programs during the school year. Educational therapy is classroom instruction with a PA Department of Education certified teacher. Depending upon the program, students receive 5 or 10 hours of educational therapy per week. Adolescents in our Residential programs are served through the local school district and attend local public schools.

If we receive the proper signed consent from the parents and/or student, one of our certified teachers will contact the student’s school to gather information about their education and, later, to discuss the transition back to school upon discharge.

For more information, please contact Educational Therapy services at WellSpan Philhaven by phone at 717-270-2433 or by fax at 717-279-2783.
