At Forward Integrated Services, our experienced and dedicated team works to help people with disabilities identify and achieve their dreams. Our state-licensed and nationally-certified therapists have decades of experience in the disability community, successfully serving children, adults, families and organizations.
Our team of BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts), BCaBAs (Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts) and experienced professionals provide the following services for persons with disabilities, caregivers and community supporters:
Community Integration Services assist, empower, and build upon the strengths of the participant and family so the participant can be fully integrated into the community with their family. Community integration services benefit families with children or youth who have multiple and complex mental health and/or behavioral concerns, and are involved in multiple services and service systems , by providing intensive case coordination.
Our team of experienced professionals provide the support that is necessary for the participant and family to move seamlessly through all community environments, and prevent out-of-home placement. This service is coordinated by a state-licensed social worker using a team approach to meet client and family needs expeditiously, and it is typically provided virtually.
Unpaid Caregiver Training and Support provides education and support to an unpaid caregiver of a participant that increases confidence, stamina, and empowerment to support and care for the participant.
An unpaid caregiver is any person, family member, neighbor, friend, companion, or co-worker who provides uncompensated care, training, guidance, companionship or support to the client. This service is typically provided virtually or in person (depending on geographical location) via one-hour weekly sessions by a BCBA or BCaBA.
PEERS© Social Skills Training is an evidence-based, parent-assisted intervention to motivate adolescents in middle or high school who are interested in learning ways to make and keep friends and develop more meaningful connections. During each 90-minute group session, adolescents are taught important social skills by an experienced and PEERS-trained professional and given the opportunity to practice them in sessions during socialization activities (e.g., playing sports, games, etc).
Parents simultaneously attend separate sessions facilitated by a BCBA and are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback during weekly socialization homework assignments.
Behavior Supports includes assistance and guidance with all the tasks necessary to confidently work with your client exhibiting behavior concerns. This includes completing behavior-specific assessments, creating and implementing a data-collection system, developing an initial home or community support plan focused on creating replacement behaviors, education and technical assistance to carry out the plan, understanding how to use the data collected to inform consultations with other providers, and monitoring the success of the plan. This service is provided by a behavior analyst and may be provided virtually or in person, depending on location.
