Mission: Edgewood provides compassionate care and treatment to restore children and strengthen families through intensive therapy, special education, residential treatment, case management and support services.
Programs: Edgewood School offers three unique programs for non-traditional learners. The Hitchcock School serves children at the middle and upper school levels who need assistance with social skills instruction. Edgewood also offers a specialized program for students with autism or other diagnoses along the Pervasive Developmental Disorder Spectrum. Additionally, Edgewood provides academic services and treatment for students, ages 5-17, with severe emotional and behavioral disorders.
My 9 year old grandson was placed with an adoptive family several years ago. He was placed in Edgewood in Jan 2011 by MO Children's Services because of serious lying, stealing ad general trouble making within the family. He was there for 10 months but is a far happier boy that has not been the slightest problem since leaving Edgewood in November 2011. He has been enrolled in a Public School and is doing well.
