AltaPointe School- Based Therapy Program
AltaPointe offers school-based therapy services in many area public schools in Mobile, Baldwin, and Washington counties, as well as Sylacauga and Talladega city schools, and Clay, Coosa and Randolph county schools. This program makes therapy more easily accessible so that a child’s school life is not disrupted by absences. School-based therapy is best practice and recommended by the Alabama Department of Mental Health. Fairhope Middle School participates in the AltaPointe School-Based Therapy Program.
AltaPointe provides an on- site therapist who comes to FMS weekly to see students. This school- based service is provided via a referral from a School Counselor to AltaPointe. An AltaPointe therapist can only see students at FMS who have this insurance: PEEHIP, Medicaid, or ALL Kids. Parents interested in AltaPointe school- based therapy services are welcome to contact the School Counselors for more information.
The initial assessment for school-based services is done at the AltaPointe office in Fairhope. The parent and the child simply have to walk in and sign in at the front desk on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 pm. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Parents need to bring the child, the child’s insurance card, and proof of identification (parent) and/ or custody papers.
