CCMC School 
Address: 300 John Downey Drive
New Britain, CT, 06051
Description: The CCMC School provides comprehensive special education programing for students, referred by their school districts, who require intensive intervention due to severe emotional, behavioral, physical, or learning problems. The school is designed to provide a high level of structure and support, as well as integrated service delivery to address each child’s unique educational, therapeutic, vocational, social, emotional, and developmental needs. Family involvement and support are priorities. Family counseling, parent education, parent support, and 24-hour crisis intervention services are provided.

The goal of the CCMC School is to foster the development of independence in social, emotional, behavioral, and academic skills so that students may be transitioned back to their home school district. We believe that children can realize their potential given an environment that is supportive, developmentally appropriate, and geared to specific individual needs. The CCMC School is dedicated to the development of a sense of cooperation, self-motivation, adjustment, and academic accomplishment for each child.

The CCMC School provides programming in the following areas: Elementary and Middle/Intermediate ED, Functional Skills (Elementary, Middle and High School), Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Disabilities, Vocational Education, Extended Year, and Mental Health Services. Specific services include:

  • Individual and Group Psychotherapy,
  • Socialization Groups,
  • Family Psychotherapy,
  • Family Support Groups,
  • Parent Training,
  • Family Outreach Services,
