The purpose of this project was to identify and create a program that would meet the needs of emotionally disturbed children, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund the program at College Park Elementary School in Costa Mesa, California. Emotionally disturbed students demonstrate challenging behaviors that are displayed frequently and at high intensity during the school day. Many school professionals do not have adequate training and many schools have limited resources and are unable to provide effective interventions for the students with emotional disturbances. Providing a program with a multidisciplinary approach involving special education teachers, social workers, and animal-assisted therapists for will create a therapeutic learning environment that promotes positive behaviors in the classroom.
The Ronya and George Kozmetsky (RGK) Foundation was chosen to fund this grant. The actual submission and funding of this proposal were not requirements for completion of this project.
