In Home Support Services
The In Home Support Services program is designed to support children in becoming active participants in both family and community life. Services focus on enhancing children’s skills through their daily living, self-help, self-care, behavior management, communication and socialization. Woodfords staff members work to develop an individual plan with each family, focusing on specific goals and objectives for the child. Woodfords believes that the family is a very important part of a team approach, and the active participation of the family is essential in building a strong foundation for the child.
Woodfords In Home Support team is committed to the following program goals:
- To promote a team approach, supporting families are experts on their child’s needs, and as a valuable and contributing member of the treatment team.
- To promote the empowerment of both the individual and the family.
- To provide consistent individualized services to children with special needs and their families.
- To provide competent, trained staff for the delivery of services.
- To provide ongoing communication with individuals and their families, ensuring quality services.
