I came across an excellent resource today that differentiates between therapeutic boarding and residential treatment options following wilderness. Although I summarize the various levels of treatment intervention for struggling teens in my article “How do I Decide the Best School for my Child”, I especially like the descriptions provided by educational consultant Leslie Goldberg of the Goldberg Center in her post “Therapeutic Boarding or Residential Treatment after Wilderness”. The Goldberg Center is a respected educational consulting firm that enjoys an excellent reputation. One unique resource is their in-house Goldberg Educational Placement Inventory (GEPI) – which is a free resource offered by Leslie and her team to help parents determine the best placement options for their son or daughter. The Goldberg Center’s web-site and blog are excellent sources of help for parents.
