The writer sought to review residential treatment centers dealing with emotional disturbance and to relate the function of the educational program within the institutional settings. The paper will show how the living centers strive to provide a stable environment beneficial, perhaps vital, to each child's existence, and how at the same time the staff members, teachers, including education specialists, attempt to handle academic problems in conjunction with personality adjustment. How this combined effort endeavors to work with each individual child not treatable in the regular classroom will be a major focus of the presentation.
