The packet will also provide care recommendations, concrete, tactile therapeutic strategies and guidelines for improved day to day functioning.The program is located at Texas NeuroRehab Center, a specialized residential treatment facility located ten minutes from downtown Austin on 67 wooded acres.
The Ranch Achievement Program provides intensive psychiatric day treatment and required education for children, ages 8-17. It is designed to evaluate and treat psychiatric and behavioral symptoms that are too severe to be managed in outpatient therapy alone, but do not require a 24-hour controlled environment. The program is a treatment option that may prevent hospitalization and can serve as a transition from inpatient care. The Ranch Achievement Program utilizes The University of Texas Charter School to provide required educational components.
