What is the Halton Intensive Program Day Treatment?
The Halton Intensive Program (HIP) Day Treatment Program is for children and youth dealing with social, emotional, and/or behavioural challenges. These challenges cause them to have difficulty in a typical school setting.
The child or youth may also be experiencing difficulties at home and/or in the community.
The Halton Intensive Program (Day Treatment) is run in partnership with the Halton Catholic District School Board and Halton District School Board, and works with other Halton School Boards. It takes place in a school classroom. The teacher is an employee of the school board and offers academic programming. The main focus of the program is treatment.
Services are provided mainly to children 9-11 years of age.
