Programs located at our locations in Old Saybrook & Watertown
We are currently accepting students into our day programs at the LEAD transition center. These programs provide intensive small group or individual academic support for those students transitioning between placements, or those struggling to find success with their current school program. We will work with districts and families to ensure the highest level of success for each student through collaborative work, consultation, and a multi-disciplinary approach.
Diagnostic Placement and Assessment
For students who are experiencing significant difficulties in schools with academics, behavior, or social skills, diagnostic placement will help to determine the necessary steps for success. Our Center provides a short-term placement that gives students the opportunity to better understand their strengths, while developing the skills necessary to be successful in school with friends, families and in communities.

In some cases, the standard diagnostic placement is not enough to prepare a student for transition back to school. For those students, an extended transition program is available. We will collaborate with school district personnel to plan for and ensure a continuation of care for students throughout the school year.
