Narrative

Supported employment program providing assessment, employment, training, & other necessary supports for maintaining and securing individual's employment.

The Clinical Support Services program includes implementations of behavioral treatment plans, consistent pharmacologic intervention and monitoring. Our clinical staff works collaboratively with community-based clinicians to provide support as needed (psychiatry, neurology, etc.) and with local and regional psychiatric facilities. The Clinical services team provides individual assessment and consultative case reviews, supports all agency programs and trains agency staff in the development of individualized therapeutic plans using the principals of Applied Behavior Analysis.
