All Kinds of News for August 12, 2020
New Focus Academy, a therapeutic residential program and specialized school for adolescent boys ages 12-18, is excited to announce that they are expanding their Autonomy House. Students will be moving to a larger space that can now accommodate up to 12 students, located a short distance from their main campus.
The Autonomy House plays a very important role in New Focus Academy's programming. After several months as a resident in the program, students between the ages of 15 and 18 have the option to transition to the Autonomy House, where they have additional program privileges and more opportunities for independence. "We are so excited that the Autonomy House will now be available to more students," says Dr. Brandon Park, Executive Director at New Focus Academy.
While living at the Autonomy House, the focus of treatment becomes how to prepare for independent living and success later in life when they are a college student or employee at a company, while continuing to develop the social skills and emotional intelligence needed to thrive in school and in life. The proximity to the main campus was an important factor.
"Working on a transition home can present unique challenges for our neurodiverse students. That is why the proximity to our main campus is so important, in order to allow students the flexibility to transition back to the main campus whenever it is needed," says Dr. Park."We are so grateful for all who have supported our program over the past couple of years. New Focus Academy is expanding and changing, and we couldn't be more excited about this growth."
