For Referring Professionals & Educational Consultants
We are a co-ed young adult transition program mainly focused on working with college capable students ages 18-23 with mental health needs and learning differences. We have specialized programming for adults over 23.
Northwest College Support is in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and our sister program, Gemba Gap, is located in Boise, Idaho.
We focus on helping college students gain academic success and move towards young adult independence.
Each student works with an in-house team of a therapist, education coach, and life skills coach. Students meet one-on-one with their team members, and form strong rapports, which allows us to help the students gain insight and break through former patterns that were not allowing for success in the past.
Most plans start at $5,900 per month, and can be reduced in cost over time as the client progresses. Gemba Gap Program starts at $7,900 per month. We have the ability to directly bill insurance for the hours a client works with their therapist, and reimburse families for that portion of the costs.
