We offer several specialized support services for individuals with a developmental disability or autism.
Behavioral Health Support
Some of the individuals in our Developmental Disability programs may also be diagnosed with mental illness, or may experience distress due to their disability.
Our clinical services include case management, peer support, advocacy, and individual or group therapy.
Therapists and the psychiatry team at our Behavioral Health Centers offer treatment for anxiety and depression, communication skills-building, anger management, and other mental health issues.
If the people we serve experience a mental health crisis, we offer temporary emergency placement in a facility where they receive 24-hour intensive support and care.
We provide a variety of Outreach services for program participants living independently in the community. Our staff helps people structure a daily routine; and assists with budgeting and finances, securing housing subsidies, making appointments, arranging transportation, and planning special activities.
Our nursing team works with staff in all of our residential and outreach programs to educate program participants about medical conditions and concerns, consult about medical visits and hospital stays, and to coordinate overall plans of care.
Our services are provided under contracts with the Commonwealth’s Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC), and our work is conducted in close partnership with these state agencies.
