Day Treatment Services (CA-DTX) 7: Education Services
Interpretation Organizations that do not provide educational services on-site should coordinate with schools or community-based providers to meet the educational needs of all people. When organizations do not directly provide or arrange education services, case records should indicate that education plans are integrated into treatment plans and document advocacy for areas of unmet educational need. Education services will vary depending on the population served.
