Public schools have the option of developing an in-house program to meet the needs of students identified as having a severe emotional disability who would normally be served in a private day school setting. These programs differ from a typical self-contained setting in that they must incorporate a therapeutic component. Approval of such a program will allow the district to draw down special education funds in the ED-P category.
