evidence-based + client-centered
An evidence based, client-centered approach is utilized to empower each participant in building skills to gain greater independence. An individualized service plan is developed by a treatment team including: clinical staff, parents/guardians, direct care providers, personal support advocate and, most importantly, the participant. Goals are created by the team to assist the resident in developing skills in the areas of: activities of daily living, community integration, sensory and emotional self-regulation, communication and socialization.
