Intensive Behavioral Support Services
Autism and Behavioral Support – Ages 2-21
Step By Step’s Intensive Behavioral Support Services is available to children and adolescents ages 2-21 with autism and other behavioral health diagnoses. Support is provided in homes, schools, day programs and/or community settings as determined by a child’s individual scenario and needs.
In all instances, Step By Step staff works closely with families, educators and support teams to create effective treatment plans developed with a child’s unique strengths and interests front and center. Staff transfers effective techniques and strategies to the child’s educators and caregivers, further increasing the chances of long-term success.
Participating children and adolescents are evaluated by a licensed psychologist who prescribes intervention hours. From there, individualized treatment plans are developed and implemented to address the specific behavioral concerns identified during the evaluation. Participants are generally reevaluated every six months to assess progress and the need for further intervention.
