Crisis Intervention is a program for participants with intense behavioral problems.

Who is At Risk?

Individuals experiencing major life changes, such as transitioning to a new school, day program, residence or caregiver which may result in behaviors that disrupt an individual’s optimal functioning.

How an Emergency is Determined:

When there is a need for

  • Immediate alternative day or residential placement;
  • Immediate specialized clinical services (medical, behavioral, or habilitation) due to an individual’s behavioral issues or family/primary caregiver factors.
