COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL PROGRAMS

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

 

Individual interventions designed to decrease the individual’s severe mal-adaptive behaviors which jeopardize his or her ability to remain integrated in the community.

 

Services include:

 

  • comprehensive assessment of deficient cognition and maladaptive behavior(s);

  • development of a structured cognitive/behavioral intervention plan, which has as its primary focus the teaching of socially appropriate behaviors;

  • the elimination of maladaptive behaviors through the development and implementation of cognitive compensatory strategies;

  • implementation of the plan;

  • on-going or periodic supervision of the waiver participant, family members and caregivers concerning treatment regiments, cognitive and behavioral strategies and interventions and use of equipment specified in the plan of care;

  • periodic reassessment of the plan;

  • assistance to providers in implementing participant-specific interventions.

 

This service is performed within the context of the individual’s person-centered team, in concert with the DSS social worker who acts as administrative case manager.  Cognitive/behavioral programs may be provided in the individual’s home or in the community in order to reinforce the training in a real-life situation.
