Rehabilitative Community Services for Children with Intellectual Disabilities (Section 28)

Rehabilitative and Community Services (RCS) is a home and community-based behavioral health service for children with intellectual disabilities and mental health disorders. The program is intended to build on family strengths to establish independence and success. We assist the child and his/her family to establish routines, develop positive and safe coping skills, decrease unsafe behaviors, master skills of daily living, and integrate socially into the community.

Behavioral health services are conducted in the child’s home and community with the participation of the family and natural supports in developing and carrying out the treatment plan. Each child’s treatment is unique and individualized in an effort to best identify and meet the family’s and child’s needs.

Direct care staff are required to receive behavioral health professional training, as well as crisis response, intervention, and CPR/First Aid. In addition to these trainings, our direct care staff receive quality clinical supervision intended to build knowledge of the latest practices in working with youth.
