Sometimes, individuals diagnosed with ASD or BD will engage in challenging behaviors. These behaviors can become restrictive, interfere with daily functioning, present a threat to the health and welfare of the individual or others, and become burdensome to family or caregivers. If an individual is eligible for IBHS, he/she will be assigned a team of one or more therapists.
Behavioral Consultant (BC): responsible for conducting assessments to first identify why the challenging behavior is occurring. S/he will then develop a treatment plan or a Behavior Support Plan (BSP) to assist both the individual and their caregivers with managing challenging behaviors and training replacement behaviors.
The BC uses the BSP as a guide for training staff, parents, and caregivers. The BSP is intended to act as a comprehensive behavior management guide, customized to meet individual needs. Ongoing support from the BC includes: (a) the collection and assessment of data to evaluate ongoing success, and (b) making modifications to maintain low levels of challenging behaviors or to further reduce them. The BC will also oversee the direct support staff to ensure adherence to the BSP, correct implantation of the procedures, appropriate collection of data, and progress toward goals.
Behavioral Health Technician (BHT): responsible for direct implementation of the treatment or behavior plan in the home, school, and community settings
Mobile Therapist (MT): mental health clinician responsible for working with the client, and his/her family, by discussing emotions,conflict, etc.
In-Home, School, and Community supports
