At Turning Points, students participate in language arts, science, social studies, math classes, physical education, vocational training and therapeutic activities daily. The educational curriculum is process oriented and directed toward individual developmental and emotional needs. A licensed special educator works with the student and his family to develop educational and behavioral goals that meet the objectives defined in the students Individual Education Plan. (IEP). Clinical case management and individual clinical services are provided in collaboration with Northeast Kingdom Mental health, the local community mental health center.
