     IISS is one-on-one interventions with the participant provided by a direct care worker we call technicians. This service is goal-oriented and task-oriented, with interventions developed on an individualized basis based on the treatment plan that has been developed by the Family Consultant assigned to the family.

    This IISS service may be provided in the participant's home or community environment as a learning experience and opportunity to illustrate and model alternative ways for the participant to behave. This is achieved through structured support, reinforcement, modeling and behavior management, and is documented thru the technicians daily written progress notes.

The goals for all of our children are intended to:
