The Therapeutic Community Middle School Program, part of The Frost School, is a year round non-public special education program that serves middle school students with emotional and behavioral disorders and Autism spectrum disorders. The program utilizes a therapeutic community/group model where special education and counseling are integrated within the milieu. Students are taught communication, personal accountability, problem solving, social skills, and relationship building skills through the daily group counseling sessions, community meetings, and individual counseling sessions.
