Intensive In-Home (IIH) service is a home and/or community-based intervention provided by a licensed clinician (IIH-C) or behaviorist (IIH-B), specialized in servicing children, adolescents, and young adults with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities. IIH providers are trained to address and treat the potential diagnosis of co-occurring mental health challenges. This service is offered to assist at-risk youth under the age of 21 years old and their families in overcoming and successfully managing the behavioral, social, academic, adaptive, and emotional challenges associated with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Genetic Disorders. Our professional and experienced clinicians are held to the highest standard and offer individualized treatment plans tailored to the youth and family. These services are geared to offer stability and support in order to prevent potential need for higher level of services.
The Biopsychosocial Needs Assessment (BPS NA) is an assessment tool conducted by a licensed clinician to determine treatment needs and treatment planning for a range of mental health services provided to at-risk youth and their families. The assessment is completed within the home or community setting and considers the youth’s functioning across a variety of life domains. This assessment is necessary for children entering the Children’s System of Care and is one of the first steps in initiating services.
Our specialized clinicians offer services grounded in evidenced based practice to promote the highest potential for growth, change and hope to all we serve. Because the Empower U. team is composed of vast and diverse variety with regard to professional orientation, clinical approach, area of expertise, and personal attributes, we pride ourselves in our ability to hand select a clinician best suited to match the needs and unique characteristics of each youth and their family.
