Behavioral Services

Our services are tailored to help maximize abilities and enable individuals to successfully reside in a community setting. Each individual’s plan will be a reflection of his or her unique personal interests, strengths and dreams.

A behavior support coordinator will provide a plan of intervention and training for the individual and caregivers to address behavioral challenges within the actual context, and with specific goals in mind. It is important for individuals to increase their skills in self-management with family and caregivers providing consistent support.
