Behavioral Assistance

Behavioral Assistance is designed to support youth and their families in meeting behavioral goals in various community settings. The service is targeted for children and adolescents who are at risk of out-of-home placement or who have returned home from residential placement and need flexible wrap-around supports to ensure safety and support community integration. The service is tied to specific treatment goals and is developed in coordination with the youtjh and their family.

Behavioral Assistance Providers aid the family in implementing safety plans and behavioral management plans when youth are at risk for offending behaviors, aggressions, and oppositional defiance.

  • Staff provides supports to youth and their families during periods when behaviors have been typicallly problematic - such as during morning preparation for school, at bedtime, after school, or other timies when there is evidence of a pattern of an escalation of problem behaviors.
  • The service may be provided in shcool classrooms or on school busses for short periods of time to help a youth's transition froom hospitals or residential settings but is not intended as a permanent solution to problem behaviors at school.
  • Behavioral Assistants have flexible schedules in response to individualized consumer and family needs - services are available during the day, evenings, on weekends, and on holidays.
  • We work closely with the treatment team, attending clinical and supervision meetings, and work in a collaborative way with family members.
