Each student is assigned a therapist who oversees the therapeutic structure around the student. A therapy plan is developed for each student supported by GLS. The plans are student-centered and reflect progress toward goals in the areas of sensory regulation, relational skills, social/communication skills, and cognitive abilities. Family engagement is emphasized within goals addressing parent education and skills training, and systemic family therapy when appropriate. Students are often encouraged to contribute to their plans by collaborating in goal development, and by developing “Dare Greatly” goals that reflect their hopes and dreams. Therapy plans are implemented upon admission and monitored quarterly by the student’s assigned therapist.
