“David” an 8 year old boy with classic Autism, came to us after being removed from his home by DCF. He was non-verbal, using grunting sounds and pointing or acting out to communicate his thoughts and feelings. He had an intense fear of going outside and making transitions to new places was overwhelming for him. His academic skills were extremely low and he was not getting any real educational services due to the upheaval in his life. HCRS staff immediately began to identify the services he would need to progress and grow. A shared living provider was found who has given him a wonderful family environment to live and grow in. David now goes to school for the whole day. He is using his words more than ever and instead of pulling on someone or grunting or pointing, he is prompted to use requests like “ Can I use the computer, please,” without being told.

School-Based Services

School Based ServicesHCRS’ Children, Youth, and Family Services has individual contracts with 28 schools to provide mental health, behavioral, and substance use services in the schools.

Based on the school’s needs, we can provide them with a Masters-Level Clinician who will work directly with the student as well as the teachers, staff, and parents to help meet the emotional and behavioral needs of the student in the school setting.

We can also provide the school with a Behavioral Interventionist who can work one-on-one with a high behavioral needs student in the classroom, following a behavioral assessment and plan.

All HCRS staff working in a school are supervised by Masters-level, licensed clinicians who are skilled in mental health and applied behavioral analysis.
