Child & Adolescent Services

Glenwood’s child and adolescent services include education and residential services:


Glenwood’s Preschool Program focuses on early intervention services.  For information:  Contact Katrina Drake at (205) 212-6726 or kdrake@glenwood.org.

Our on campus schools include, Allan Cott School and Lakeview School. Allan Cott is structured especially for children with autism, while Lakeview serves young boys diagnosed with severe emotional disturbances. Glenwood’s schools provide children with low student-to-teacher ratios and practice researched-based techniques such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Children receive speech and occupational therapy as well as an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Glenwood’s structured schools allow children to reach their full potential in the classroom.

Glenwood also offers residential services for children and adolescents. Choosing a long-term care environment for a child with autism or behavioral health issue is a difficult decision. Glenwood’s residential habilitation facilities provide a homelike environment as an alternative to institutionalization. Glenwood carefully chooses the home for each child that is ideally suited for his or her needs and skills and provides 24 hour care to implement each child’s progress and needs in a least restrictive setting.

Residential Services for Children :  Drummond Center I, Drummond Center II, Daniel House I, Daniel House II, McDonough House, and Reynolds House.
