Treatment Services in the Institution

By Abraham J. Simon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1937

The problem child in the foster care institution requires services not necessarily essential for the care of the normal child. These services are in the fields of psychiatric study, observation, treatment, special education, recreational and vocational opportunities, and a daily living routine motivated by mental hygiene concepts. Without these services, the capacity for a satisfactory response from the problem child remains hidden and the problem state continues as an aggravation both to the institution, to the child, and finally to the community.
