Caring for the whole person, inside and out.
Having an intellectual and developmental disability comes with many challenges, one of those being co-occurring mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, PTSD and more. But for far too long, individuals have been treated as if they have a singular disability – with little to no attention paid to the underlying conditions that can have a significant impact on their life.
Typically, intervention occurs only when extreme behavior arises. But at Support, Inc., we’re doing things a lot differently. We look at the whole person – not just their physical and mental challenges, but their emotional and spiritual ones as well. And through our uniquely individualized mental and behavioral health treatment plans, we work to assist individuals in experiencing a greater sense of peace, wellbeing, progress and enhanced quality of life.
With this earlier intervention comes another benefit, caregivers develop a deeper understanding of an individual’s needs, and are empowered to proactively and compassionately provide the environment to match.
How it works
It all starts with an integrative assessment package, one that includes structured information gathering through a 365-degree approach, and concludes with evidence-based treatment plans within the context of a strong client-therapist relationship. Working directly with caregivers and providers, we assess symptoms, evaluate problem areas and set long-term, emotional management goals. Then together, we thoughtfully construct a plan that involves training the people involved in the individual’s day-to-day, as well as teaching the client how their body responds to stress and other emotions though sessions done in an individual or group setting.
All of our Clinical Services utilize evidence-based practices that integrate Applied Behavioral Analysis and non-Applied Behavioral Analysis therapies. Our clinical staff are all highly-experienced, masters-level professionals, and we’re proud to include a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst on our team as well.
