School for children with special needs in hospital settings

The Downside

Little information available

PS Q023 serves students with psychiatric or medical needs who are in hospitals or treatment centers, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) . There are five different sites including NYCCC, Lifeline Center for Child Development, Zucker-Hillside Psychiatric Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, and St. Marys Hospital for Children.

Students who attend PS Q023 are accepted after all other options have been exhausted. According to the CEP, students in this program have spent much of their previous school time in crisis, out of the classroom, in detention, hospitalized or being truant and many students have learning deficits due to the amount of time not spent in class.

ADMISSIONS: Citywide. PS Q023 is part of District 75, a network of 69 schools dedicated to New York Citys students with disabilities who require increased attention. District 75 provides educational, vocational, and behavioral support programs for students who are on the autism spectrum, have significant cognitive delays, are significantly emotionally challenged, have a sensory impairment or have multiple disabilities.
