Intensive Behavioral (IB) Services
Intensive Behavioral (IB) Services are short-term (6 month) services that focus on developing effective behavior management strategies for individuals whose challenging behavioral issues put the individual at risk of placement in a more restrictive residential setting. While not a crisis intervention program, this program does teach the individual, families and other caregivers how to respond to and deal with those challenging behaviors that might otherwise result in admission to a hospital or psychiatric center.
To be eligible for IB Services, the individual must live in his/her own residence or a Family Care home and must be enrolled in the Home and Community Based Services Waiver. If you are interested in learning more about IB Services, please contact the Eligibility Coordinator or the Intensive Behavioral Services Liaison at your local Developmental Disabilities Regional Office (DDRO) representing the county in which the individual/family lives.
