TEAM Program Improves Collaboration at the Glenholme School

A new journey of enhancing delivery of treatment to Glenholme students is afoot. TEAM (Treatment Enhancement Assessment and Management) combines feedback and goals from the Clinical, Behavior, Boarding and Education areas of the school. This is an evolution from the old quarterly review format. That was more subjective and often consisted of anecdotal conversations about whatever was fresh on people’s minds. This is a goal-oriented, data-driven progress review format that covers all aspects of the program.

Each week faculty will break up into small groups to review student progress and assess areas for modification as needed. The objective is to create a new goal-oriented and data-driven process of assessing and monitoring student progress in all spheres.

The first time a student is on the docket for a TEAM meeting they will have a PGOI created by each area. This stands for Problem – Goal – Objective – Intervention. After a student’s initial TEAM meeting, faculty will create a quarterly review of each PGOI. In the coming weeks, students will also begin preparing self assessments to present at the meeting themselves.

The Glenholme School is a coed therapeutic boarding and day school in Connecticut for students 10-21 years old. The positive-based, in-the-moment therapeutic approach helps students achieve their social, emotional and academic goals. Glenholme students typically have average to above average intelligence, with high functioning autism, ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s, depression, anxiety and various learning differences. The school provides a balance of academic studies, a wide array of extracurricular activities and behavioral and clinical supports throughout the program.
