Campagna Academy’s ID/DD Program is designated a Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP).

Campagna Academy’s ID/DD (Intellectual and Learning Disabilities) treatment services provides structured 24-hour clinical, educational and psychiatric care for males and females with an IQ range of 50 to 65, who also have behavior disorders. Limitations in adaptive functioning that prevent a child from being successful in less restrictive settings are identified and targeted. Interventions address improving a child’s impulse control, social judgment and interpersonal skills to enable and support the child to transition to a less restrictive setting. Treatment takes place in a campus setting. Clients will utilize a vast array of community based educational services – each will be provided in highly structured and closely supervised classrooms. Length of stay is determined by the child’s successful achievement of treatment goals.

Population Served:

Females and males ages 10 to 20 who are diagnosed with mild to moderate cognitive limitations with severe emotional issues that challenge both time-honored and specialized therapeutic treatment. Youth who fall outside the stated age or I.Q. range will be individually reviewed for appropriateness of service and possible admission on a case-by-case basis. Services are designed and staffed to address a wide range of psychiatric and behavioral issues, while accounting for intellectual and developmental limitations that can often disrupt traditional treatment strategies. Campagna utilizes highly individualized, carefully sequenced and closely monitored therapeutic and behavior modification systems.
