The purpose of BI is to guide the formulation of developmentally-appropriate objectives and intervention strategies related to goals identified. BI services are consistent, and continuous, and are provided to improve the clients’ functional skills and minimize problem behaviors. BI is provided to meet the intervention needs of the client by developing adaptive skills, and addressing maladaptive behaviors.
Services are provided in the clients natural environment - such as the clients home or in the community. A qualified FCS Provider will come to your house or meet you in the community and work with the client one on one to provide individualized, specific treatment that is based on a treatment plan developed together between the Provider and Parent/Guardain.
In addition the the requirements listed at the top of this page, all BI Providers have successfully achieved bachelors level college degree and have completed at least a year of experience working with children who have a developmental disability.
This service is very similar to Behavior Intervention, but the Provider is in their last semester of their bachelors program or may not yet have the full year of required experience.
Children who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability and have Medicaid as their insurance can access Community Services through FCS. We would love to partner with you and your family. Contact us to request our Community Service Intake Packet.
