The Webb School Programs

About  |  Our Mission  |  Programs  |  Locations

For decades, The Institute of Living has been at the forefront of Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

Special education programs began in 1968, providing therapeutic and educational experiences to students in the Hartford and Central Connecticut area. Today, The Webb Schools provide a comprehensive array of services to public schools, ranging from in-district consultations to student enrollments at one of our state-approved, special education schools located in Hartford and Cheshire. Our mission is to provide individually tailored programs for students in the least restrictive environment. We also provide consultation and education concerning mental health issues in schools to parents, communities, and school districts.

The Webb Schools continue to be open to advances in the fields of education and mental health. We are proud to continue the tradition of innovation and quality as we develop programs to support students, their families and their school districts. To this end, the effectiveness of our programs is continually being evaluated and revised. Feedback from students, parents, agencies and school districts often lead to the development of new programs designed to meet particular needs.

Accolades from parents and communications with young people who have participated in The Webb School programs verify that our creative, caring environment helps students to realize their potential.
