Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) provide medically necessary behavioral consultation, therapy and interventions for children ages 18 months – 20 years with autism spectrum disorders. BHRS is a short-term service. For this reason, BHRS promotes independence by transferring the skills and expertise of BHRS staff to the family, school, and/or other involved child-serving systems. Likewise, it is equally important to improve the quality of life for the child and family. Some children with more intensive needs may benefit from one-to-one behavioral support provided by a Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS).
Children that do not require as much behavioral support or demonstrate less intensive needs may benefit from behavioral consultation or mobile therapy from a Behavior Specialist Consultant (BSC) or Mobile Therapist (MT). The BSC or MT will develop and monitor an individualized treatment plan for the child and family.
