As a component of Linwood’s comprehensive program, we offer both 5-day and 7-day residential programs. Students are referred to these residential programs based on need through local school systems, the Autism Waiver and local Departments of Social Services.
Students in Linwood’s 7-day residential programs reside in nearby group homes with three or four children in each home. Our 5-day residential program operates Monday through Friday in our on-campus dormitory. All residences have round-the-clock staffing including awake-overnight supervision. Under the direction of Linwood’s State Certified Residential Child Care Program Administrators, a full complement of staff provide supervision and engage the residents in a wide array of home living and recreational activities after school and on weekends.
The Maryland Department of Human Resources licenses and monitors Linwood’s residential services. Linwood is also an approved provider for residential habilitation under the Autism Waiver.
