Central Massachusetts Special Education Collaborative
The Central Massachusetts Special Education Collaborative (CMSEC) proudly provides educational, clinical, and therapeutic services to children, grades kindergarten through twelve. Our staff of 150 full time dedicated employees serve over 500 students from school districts surrounding Worcester County. The CMSEC provides a wide array of clinical and consultative services to schools to help support seriously emotionally disturbed students. Our clinical and consultative staff have extensive experience dealing with very complicated and challenging students who present problems ranging from severe behavior problems to serious mental illness. We have developed a variety of models to assist schools in meeting the needs of these students.
The Hartwell Learning Center (HLC) is a public, highly structured, therapeutic day school with small classroom size, low student to staff ratios, and a school-wide positive therapeutic behavior system. In addition to group and individualized academic instruction, students receive individual and group counseling, case management, and crisis intervention. The program focuses on improving academic, social, and coping skills while providing students with a safe, consistent, and positive learning environment.
