Empowering Students to Become Responsible Adults

All curriculum is based on research and aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The educational and mental health programs are supported by a behavior intervention system, which emphasizes positive behavioral interventions aimed at empowering students to become more responsible for their own actions and to make choices that will lead to success and fulfillment.

Mental Health Services:

Point Quest licensed therapists offer interventions through an interdisciplinary, relationship based, and multi-tiered approach which actively promotes a trauma sensitive and supportive system of care for at-risk and traumatized youth within the educational environment.

The embedded “milieu” treatment model sequentially guides students through the developmental phases necessary to ensure competent and fluent utilization of critical skills across multiple life domains.

Point Quest provides Educationally Related Mental Health Services (e.g. Counseling and Guidance, Individual Counseling, Social Work Services, and Psychological Services) in addition to the embedded school-wide therapeutic “milieu.” .

Occupational Therapy Services

In order to help students complete academic based tasks, Point Quest incorporates licensed Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants within our academic program. Our therapists provide assessments and screenings to identify specific needs and appropriate support levels for our students.

Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants work within the classroom, playground and/or therapy areas to promote gross and fine-motor development, visual-motor, visual perceptual, bilateral integration, social skills, motor planning, emotional regulation skills, addressing sensory needs and concerns, and promoting independence and individual engagement to achieve educational success. Coordination with staff, teachers as well as other members of the IEP team is fundamental to providing each student with educational benefit. 

Speech & Language Services

Point Quest utilizes licensed Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPA). Qualified SLP’s conduct all assessments as well as create a functional treatment plan designed to assist each student successfully access their academic program. Instructional goals developed through the IEP process may address skills in the areas of articulation, expressive/receptive language, voice, fluency, pragmatic language and pre-academic skills. Educational progress is the ultimate goal of all intervention sessions and therefore coordination with the student’s teacher as well as other members of the IEP team is fundamental to educational benefit.

Behavior Services

Our behavior analyst provides daily support in shaping behavior and increasing self-regulation skills in each student. Functional Analysis Assessments and Positive Behavior Intervention Plans are completed as requested through the IEP process and designed to assist the team in evaluating the environment, teaching strategies and positive reinforcement strategies. By understanding the behavior and teaching alternatives or changing environmental conditions, we seek to permanently change the way students seek to get their needs met.

Point Quest also implements a daily behavior collection program, which is designed to provide students feedback on their behavior in the areas of the school’s Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program: practicing respect, acting responsibly, working together and staying safe (PAWS).
