Services

We offer services through self-pay options on a sliding scale.

We also offer in-house-financing to spread out payments.

The only insurance we take is the Medicaid Waiver. 

Cognitive Brain Training

Utilizing The Listening Program®, Brain Builder®, and Interactive Metronome® training, we can reorganize and rebuild neural pathways in order to synchronize the brain to better overall functioning and performance.

 

BrainBuilder® is a computer-based training program that is designed to assess and build auditory and visual sequential processing abilities. With as little as ten minutes of daily mental exercise, powerful gains can be made in short-term memory and thinking skills. In an intensive series of adaptive, interactive exercises, BrainBuilder trains the brain to expand its ability to sequentially process auditory and visual information. Sequential processing is fundamental to all learning activities, communication, social interaction and higher-order cognitive functions. 

Behavioral Assessment

Through observation, interview of direct staff and family members, functional behavioral analysis and assessment, to include but not limited to, Behavior  Assessment, System for children, Survey of Reinforcers, Behavior Dimensions Scales, CPNI Behavior Inventory, a Differential test of conduct and emotional problems, Motivation Assessment, Conner's rating scales, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Test, Asperger Syndrome Diagnostic Scale, Adult and Pediatric Functional Behavioral Assessment.

Behavioral Individual / Group Counseling 

Psychotherapeutic or psychoeducational intervention related to the developmental disability in order for the individual to acquire or maintain appropriate adaptive behaviors, interactions with others and behavioral self-management, to positively impact the individual's behavior or functioning.

Behavioral Consultation

Consultation and recommendation for behavioral interventions and development of behavioral support plans that are related to the individual's developmental disability and are necessary for the individual to acquire or maintain appropriate adaptive behaviors, interactions with others and behavioral self-management.

 

Intervention modalities relate to an identified challenging behavioral need of the individual. Specific goals and procedures for the service are established. Individuals with co-occurring diagnoses of DD and Medicaid covered mental health conditions have identified needs met by each of the appropriate systems without duplication but with coordination by the behavioral services professional to obtain the best outcome for the individual.
