Through collaboration and our continuum of services, we utilize a team approach in order to provide individualized and person-centered services. For individuals receiving Mental Health services, the following departments and services are vital components of this continuum.
Our professionals are educated and trained to evaluate and treat children with speech, language and swallowing problems. The speech therapy team will focus on developmental areas including talking, understanding, social interactions and engagement as well as address feeding and swallowing problems.
The Mental Health Therapists refer to or consult with Board Certified Behavioral Analysts in Behavioral Health when a behavioral plan or functional behavioral assessment is needed. This may also occur when the Mental Health and Behavioral Health teams collaborate on a school consult.
