Assessment and Intervention Services
Family with a child with a disability

Our Family Support Services program, Assessment and Intervention Services (AIS), is designed to provide person-centered services and supports to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities within the context of family homes, group homes and independent living arrangements. AIS staff, with input from the Interdisciplinary Planning Team, will provide participants, families, support staff and/or caregivers the tools necessary to help manage, reduce, and/or extinguish targeted behaviors. We promote inclusion in the least restrictive environment.
