Therapeutic day schools are schools that are designed to help students improve in their social emotional conditions so they can return to their regular schools. The students who were interviewed had behavioral and social/emotional conditions. In add ition, the administrators of the five schools were interviewed in regards to how effective they believe their selected behavioral management plans are.
