Teachers are available to provide academic instruction at no charge to families. Teachers are New York State Certified in all subject areas and work through the Board of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES) of Monroe County. BOCES Tutors are at The Healing Connection Partial Hospitalization Program Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m. Our tutors have experience with junior high and high school students who have had eating disorders.
Teachers coordinate regularly between The Healing Connection staff, home guidance counselors, subject teachers, and parents, to help meet the ongoing academic (as well as emotional) needs of the child. The parent/guardian needs to provide approval to grant the BOCES coordinator and the BOCES teachers to contact a child's school district (via phone, e-mail, fax) to coordinate tutoring.
The Healing Connection Office Manager will speak with parents about the availability of tutoring during the initial phone screen in preparation for intake evaluation and possible program admission.
