Rehabilitative & Community Support

Woodfords’ Rehabilitative & Community Support services, formerly called In Home Support services, provides one-on-one support to children with intellectual disabilities and developmental delays so that they may become active participants in both family and community life. A Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) works with the child in their home and/or community on specific goals to increase their skills in behavior management, communication, independent living, self-care, self-help and socialization.

Rehabilitative and Community Support Specialized Services is a more intensive treatment for children who need highly structured programming in order to make progress. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) develops the treatment plan for children receiving this service. Goals are based on methods of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
