Behavioral, Neuropsychological and Psychological Services
Behavior often changes as the result of a brain injury. Many ineffective or inappropriate behaviors that develop (e.g., impulsivity, distractibility, anger, aggression, poor judgment, ineffective decision making) can be managed through behavior therapy and service coordination.
This program offers comprehensive behavioral management services for children and adults with moderate to severe cognitive impairment. The staff work with the client and service providers in the home, at work or a work program, school, day program, or other locations in the community where behavioral difficulties occur. After a comprehensive assessment, an individual behavioral plan is developed and implemented with the goal of increased behavioral control and successful community involvement.
Neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services for children and adults. Those served include individuals with acquired or traumatic brain injuries, congenital issues, learning disabilities, suspected brain injury, or neurological difficulties with possible cognitive decline.
Evaluations consist of a clinical interview, standardized psychological and neuropsychological tests, and behavioral observations. This evaluation can assist the client, team, or system in identifying personal strengths and weaknesses, developing goals and strategies for the future, and maximizing the individual’s level of independence and functioning. Consultation services include working with the client and support systems to promote understanding of the cognitive condition and resulting behaviors, as well as suggest possible interventions, both for the client and in their environment.

Goals include identification and reduction of distressing symptoms, consultation with the individual’s support system as needed, and increased functioning.
