Developmental services promote skill development for children and young adults, ages 3 through 21, who meet Idaho’s eligibility requirements for developmental disabilities programming. The goal of this service is to assist children and adolescents in acquiring functional, social, and coping skills. Goals and objectives are developed by the client, family, and staff. Services are reimbursable by Idaho Medicaid. These services are available in our Idaho Falls and Salmon offices.
Developmental services may include:
Behavior Intervention involves one-on-one skills training with a trained professional. Behavior Interventionists teach replacement behaviors while discouraging maladaptive behaviors. This service can take place in the home or the community.
Family Training is designed to help family members learn effective intervention techniques.
Community Based Supports help children explore areas of interest and engage in social and recreational activities.
Interdisciplinary Training is a team-oriented service that involves service coordination and training to better equip multidisciplinary providers to meet the unique needs of the individual.
Respite Care offers support for caregivers and children by providing temporary supervision services.
