Day School Summer Program Learning Center Diagnostic Clinic Life Academy
Summer Program Underway!
The Monarch Summer program is in full swing, as we continue the relationships forged during the school year, reunite with friends from last summer, and build new relationships. Students are also enjoying a variety of exciting classes. Apprentice Program students have been learning about how their own brains work in “Mind Investigations” class, studying brain structure and where information is stored in the brain. For more on this and other apprentice stories, click here.

And where are the Monarch Challenger students? Could they be at Geopolooza at the Museum of Natural History? Or the newly renovated downtown library? Could they be at the Houston Zoo, or at brand new Discovery Park? Maybe you’ve seen them overnighting it at Lake Livingston, but then again they might be at Sam Houston’s homestead!

What Makes a Strong Treatment Plan?

Many families come to the Monarch Diagnostic Clinic with evaluations that have been performed by clinicians in local communities and schools. Often these reports reveal the clinician’s thinking process in determining whether a child may meet criteria for a given diagnosis, e.g., Asperger’s Disorder, which can be very helpful to our clinicians in developing an initial set of hypotheses about the child. Diagnostic information is also generally quite useful in qualifying children for services and for starting to think about what kind(s) of treatment a given child may need.
