Behavior respite is used when traditional “in-home respite” is not suitable or adequate for the individual. This service offers an enhanced level of service for more challenging behaviors and utilizes principles and strategies based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Behavior respite provides parents or primary caregivers who provide care to individuals with developmental disabilities with breaks from caregiving tasks.
Behavior respite care is provided by our direct care staff with advanced behavioral management training. Our staff is required to become certified Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) six months after hire.

Attendant care provides extra support to individuals who need assistance with completing their
activities of daily living. At the traditional level, services must be delivered in the individual/family’s
home. However, at the specialized level, services can be provided in various settings such as the
individual/family’s home, in the community, or in other facilities such as a group home or day program. For individuals with severe behavioral needs, attendant care can also be used as an extra layer of support for other services or to assist during ABA-based behavioral sessions.
In-home daycare provides care to an individual in their home environment while parents or other
primary caregivers are working or attending an educational program.
Note: For these services offered, care can only be provided to the individual authorized to receive
services and not to others (e.g., siblings, friends, etc.).
