Clinical Services

Clinical Services

Clinical Services services are offered to all residential students, following a complete assessment to determine their level of need.

This assessment then drives the services which will best meet those needs. Therapists play an important role in every child’s team, working with everyone including case managers, cottage parents, legal guardians, Guardian Ad Litem, social workers, and other important individuals to provide a cohesive and consistent environment for healing.

“At Crossnore School & Children’s Home, we meet the physical needs of the children and families we serve and we address the needs of their minds and souls, as well, through the trauma-informed approach utilized by our clinical services teams.”

Johannes Steffin, Clinical Director
