Individual and Family Services (Formerly ECIS)

We provide an array of Individual & Family Services, including:

  • Comprehensive Clinical Assessments: Developmental Screenings & Assessments, IQ Testing & DSM V Diagnosis based on the individual’s needs
  • Out-Patient Therapy: provided individually, with the family, or in a group setting

Our multi-disciplinary approach and parent engagement encourage the child to strengthen skills, meet developmental milestones, and promote strong parent-child attachment and bonding.

Individual & Family Services may be provided on our campus in a group setting, one-on-one with a therapist in the home, or integrated within a partner agency location.

Outpatient Treatment Services (OPT)

We provide Outpatient Treatment Services including psychotherapy and family therapy. Therapies are offered individually or in a group setting and are conducted in the home, clinic, or other community agency. We feel that in order to empower individuals of all abilities to live their fullest life, all aspects of an individual’s health needs to be supported, including their mental health. This also applies to the individual’s families and care providers.

Services Include:

  • Social Work services provided by a licensed clinical social worker. Services provided include assessment and treatment of social-emotional skills, self-help skills, behavior interventions, and mental health therapy.
