This is a NYS Department of Health Grant which will enable SUS to establish the “Transition to Independence Program,” holistic, multi-disciplinary teams designed to: 1) successfully transition adults in Brooklyn with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and challenging behaviors living in institutional settings back to the community and, 2) keep individuals at high risk for future reliance upon institutional levels of care in the community with appropriate supports.
The Registered Behavioral Technician staff will assist BCBA's to train staff with behavior plans and data collection, will support individual's with increasing communication, and appropriate leisure skills to avoid incidents of problem behavior.
