Behavioral intervention services braid the development of daily living skills, interpersonal skills and behavioral management skills into an individualized plan to enable the child to function adequately. These services address developmental lags through the learning and applying of appropriate skills in various living settings, thereby maximizing the child's ability to remain living at home.
Individuals with serious emotional disturbances may qualify for targeted mental health case management. A case manager can help locate necessary services, make referrals as needed, and monitor the delivery of the child's mental health services. A case manager may also assist the family with support services, such as respite care.
