Consultation services are designed to provide training, technical assistance and support to individuals of all ages with disabilities. The goal is to increase the opportunities for inclusion and success in the individual’s home and their communities.
Our program can provide services to help support the individual in a variety of formats:
- In home support
- Community support
- Family/Caregiver Training
- School Consultation (to include IEP support)
Services are provided by agency-approved vendors of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) or Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), both of which are clinically proven approaches to reducing or eliminating behaviors which interfere with employment and independent living.
Sample behaviors targeted for decrease/increase:
- Toilet Training
- Behavior Reduction
- Daily Living Skills
- Employment Skills
- Social Interactions
- Inclusion in community settings
