Transitional Care

Even for children who make great progress at the Day Hospital, the disruption of their routine and the stress of reintegrating into their community schools can cause backsliding. The transition is often stressful for families, and can place additional demands on local social service agencies and on the child’s school. Here are some examples of challenges faced by children, family, teachers, schools, and social services, and case examples of how Transitional Care Team members can help.
