Children’s Home of Stockton is a non-profit, state-licensed agency that provides 24-hour, Level 12 residential care and treatment to over 150 severely emotionally disturbed and disadvantaged children and adolescents per year. Seven psychiatric-level treatment programs, located in six centralized Residential Cottages and one Community based Emancipation Cottage, provide highly specialized services to students with the following treatment issues:

• Dysfunctional family systems
• Victim of physical abuse
• Victim of sexual abuse
• Victim of emotional abuse
• Depression/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Poor self-esteem
• Social skills & living deficits
• Delinquent/pre-delinquent behaviors
• Adolescent victim/perpetrators
• Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
• Substance abuse education and prevention
• Severe emotional disturbance
• Characterological disorders

Individually staffed and supervised by full-time Masters and licensed Social Workers, all CHS residential programs are structured environments in which each student’s individual needs are assessed, and individualized treatment plans are designed and implemented. Each program utilizes a behavior management system (GAPS-Goal Attainment Point System), which is tailored to the student’s specific treatment goals. All programs provide some degree of flexibility in terms of approach to treatment, based on individually assessed student needs, treatment plan specifics, and placement goals.

The Children’s Home of Stockton’s Non-Public School (NPS) is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian Special Education school program certified by the California State Department of Education. Students are referred to the NPS program by local School Districts and the County Office of Education. The NPS is staffed by highly trained Special Education Teachers and Teachers Aids, working in a team format to provide students with a positive and enriching school experience. While academic growth and social skills development comprise the main focus of the NPS program, our ultimate goal is to assist all of our students in developing the strengths and skills in all the areas necessary for a successful transition to a less restrictive educational environment. The Non-Public School program provides a full-range of special education services for qualifying students, including:

• Small class size and low student/teacher ratio
• Formal academic assessment program
• Individualized educational planning
• Behavior Intervention Case Management (BICM) services
• Safe, highly structured campus environment
• Core academic coursework aligned with CDE standards curriculum aligned with local school districts
• Transition services and independent living skills

• Music education and band program
• Behavior management level system
• Social skills development
