Intensive Day Treatment (IDT)

Intensive Day Treatment has been offered at Rockland BOCES for more than 20 years. The program was designed to support students in grades K-12 during a time of crisis or re-entry into the community, easing them back into the routine and reality of everyday life. IDT is offered year-round.

The program, a collaboration between Rockland BOCES and the Rockland Children’s Psychiatric Center, is designed to stabilize the student and allow him/her to successfully return to school. More than 2,000 students have benefited from this service to date.
