ChildSavers therapists offer child therapy in Richmond Public Schools to provide healing and growth where children learn and play. This partnership allows us to serve even more children while engaging with families and faculty. We also offer ad hoc training, training series, and long-term consultation for educators.
Child Therapy in Richmond Public Schools
To keep children and families safe, we are currently offering virtual, school-based teletherapy and accepting new referrals from the following RPS school sites:
- MLK Middle School
- MLK Preschool
- Woodville Elementary
- Henry Marsh Elementary
- Overby-Sheppard Elementary
- Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary
- Fairfield Elementary
- Blackwell Elementary
- Boushall Middle School
- Carver Elementary
In just two years, 47% of students enrolled in child therapy in Richmond Public Schools saw a decrease in conduct referrals, and 42% saw an increase in grades. We also have a 95% show rate for student sessions during the school year and 70% of our children are meeting their treatment objectives.
School-Based Training and Consultation for Educators
ChildSavers also offers ad hoc training, training series, and long-term consultation services including asset mapping and needs assessment to schools and school divisions.
