Kids Intervention — Behavioral Health Rehabilitative Services
Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder which affects 1 of 150 youth. The term autism spectrum disorder is used to reference a group of disorders with similar impairments affecting a person's ability to communicate and socialize with others.
In response to an overwhelming need, the ReDCo Group offers behavioral health services and program interventions tailored to meet the needs and challenges of children with autism spectrum disorders in addition to providing essential supports for their families.
How does the program work?
The Behavioral Specialist meets with the family. A psychological assessment is completed by a Licensed Psychologist who prescribes the appropriate intervention.
The Behavioral Specialist reviews the psychological assessment and observes the child in their home, community, and school to gather behavioral data to create an individualized treatment plan. An inter-agency meeting is scheduled. The team includes family, school officials, and agencies that have direct contact with the youth. Implementation of the treatment plan is supervised and monitored by a Specialist. Services are based on a 1-to-1 relationship with team support.
Beyond direct services to families and youth, the ReDCo Group is committed to continuing community education related to autism spectrum disorders and the development of expanding community resources.
