Individual academic treatment is a specialized academic program designed to teach students individually, as opposed to clumping students together in an educational setting.
Adolescents are their own unique person. It is for this reason, that teens should also receive their own, personal academic curriculum. Teens learn at different speeds, through different methods, and, therefore, should be given an academic curriculum specifically created with their learning needs in mind.
Unfortunately, traditional schooling does not provide students with individual academic treatment. Typically, traditional teaching methods require students to learn as a group. Consequently, some of the teens in this group fall behind, due to their individual learning needs getting neglected. Teens, who fall behind, are then singled out, leaving them with the stigma of being 'stupid' or slow.' This unfortunate misunderstanding results in many teens feeling inadequate. These students may then be apprehensive to even attempt to learn and grow academically.
Fortunately, teens, who would greatly benefit from the services of individual academic treatment, are able to receive their education at various facilities. These specialized treatment centers include residential treatment centers, group homes, and therapeutic boarding schools for troubled teens.
