Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Does your loved one with an intellectual or developmental disability have challenging behavior that they are struggling to overcome, or are you working to encourage or foster positive behaviors? Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a science dedicated to behavior change with the goal of improving the behavior of individuals and groups. By observing the context of behaviors, our board certified and licensed Behavioral Analyst will work with your loved one and family to develop a personalized behavior management plan and set measurable, realistic, and achievable goals based on the individual’s preferences and performance level. The Behavioral Analyst will then train those implementing the plan (family members, care givers, therapists, teachers, etc.), and monitor the progress, making alterations to the plan as needed.
Clinical Mental Health Support
Our team of clinical Social Workers provide clinical mental health support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their homes. Individuals meet on a regular basis for clinical therapy sessions to help them manage their mental health.
Family Support & Mediation
We provide mentoring, family education and therapeutic interventions for families as they hold the delicate balance of caring for their family member with a disability while respecting their autonomy. Our licensed clinical social worker & certified mediator will support your family in situations where it is hard to come to unified decisions or where you simply could use professional input.
Independent Living Program/Activities of Daily Living
Our Independent Living Program (ILP) works with individuals to create a tailored weekly support plan to be implemented in their home. Services offered through ILP include but are not limited to activities of daily living (ADLs) such as money management, help with daily living skills, medical case management, in-home personal care, assistance with transportation to appointments and recreational activities, help with housecleaning, food shopping and meal preparation, and instruction in emergency notification procedures.
Whether you need regular, weekly respite or a one-time period of respite, our staff can provide 24-hour in home care for your loved one.
