Therapy Programs

We serve our clients holistically by focusing on social, emotional, and spiritual needs. We offer music therapy, recreation therapy, and behavior services to people with varying levels of disability. Each person receives individualized care from a specialist who helps them be successful at home, school, work, and in the community.

Behavior Services

The goal of this program is to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities and to increase their ability to be successful in all areas of their lives. Our Behavior Specialists conduct in-depth assessments and then develop positive support strategies shaped to cater to the unique skill set and needs of each person.

 

Our Behavior Specialists help train and assist families and Direct Support Professionals to implement the individualized strategies in a natural environment. This teamwork approach includes weekly consultations with our Consulting Psychologist and Psychiatrist to provide high quality, professional clinical services.

Music Therapy

Music has a positive and healing effect for everyone. It’s a powerful tool that can stimulate, yet decrease anxiety and help center a person’s attention, opening the mind for increased learning.
