(b) Make a preliminary determination whether the prospective child in care has disorders, disabilities, or deficits due to mental, emotional, behavioral, or physical problems for which care, supervision, training, rehabilitation, or treatment is needed to reduce a problem, maintain present level of functioning, or clarify the ongoing placement or service needs of the child in care.
(c) Arrange for ongoing therapeutic services appropriate for the child in care's specific needs and provide regular reports to the parents or legal guardians regarding the child in care's progress.
(3) A therapeutic boarding school must be prepared to provide to a parent or legal guardian of a referred student suggestions for obtaining resources in the event the child in care is not accepted by the therapeutic boarding school.
