Children’s Day Treatment in Baldwin County is designed for children and adolescents whose behavioral and emotional problems hinder their normal development in school and at home. Our goal is to help students reach their full potential.

A cooperative program between AltaPointe and the Baldwin County Public Schools, day treatment serves children in kindergarten through high school and is staffed by BCPS special education teachers and AltaPointe’s treatment team.

All classrooms are located on the AltaPointe Children’s Outpatient Fairhope campus. Admission requires a psychiatric diagnosis and approval by the school system. Students must have a minimum IQ of 70 for a referral.

Children's-Outpatient-Baldwin-CountyBCPS certified teachers offer classroom instruction and testing that correspond to the BCPS curriculum. Concurrently, AltaPointe therapists deliver treatment designed to address the emotional needs of the students. Students may be offered case management services to improve educational and emotional functioning.

  • Academic instruction in a therapeutic classroom by certified teachers provided by BCPS
  • Individual, family and group therapy with a master’s level therapist
  • Social skills training
  • Basic living skills training
  • Activity therapy
