G.O.T. Dogs School Program

PROGRAM FOR YOUTH at Phoenix Los Nogales School.

Phoenix - Los Nogales is a highly specialized, research-based school environment designed to support students with social-emotional and behavioral needs from K-5.

Here students who have exhausted less restrictive settings, will develop self-esteem, self-awareness, and coping strategies. They will function as members of a peer group and will develop realistic academic and community living skills. The ultimate goals of the school’s program are to have students remain with their families, return to their local school district as soon as possible, learn life skills, and progress with their education. An intensive effort by educational staff and clinicians is made to help students acquire the skills necessary to accomplish this goal. The therapy dogs are here to assist the teachers and other professionals to achieve these goals.
