How We Can Help

Intake and Assessment

Access Services Behavior Specialists provide an initial intake assessment that takes about an hour, with additional assessments afterward. The intake and assessment process typically take place in person, with client and team members or family present. The assessment consists of direct observations and indirect assessments such as FAST, Motivational Scale, Trauma & Behavior Checklist, Adult Sensory Processing Disorder Checklist, Social-emotional and Functional Life Skills Inventory, and more. 

In-Person Support and Training

Training is provided to the caregivers and Direct Support Professionals to aid in support and services to best care for the individual they oversee.  Behavior Specialists help develop a training protocol for the support team to help them best implement the behavior plan with the individuals they serve to help them reach their behavior goals in their home and community. 

Trauma Informed Care

Access Services has a team of experts that work directly with behavior specialists and supervisors to provide continuous training on trauma informed care. Caregivers that are informed about trauma informed practices are able to address the specific needs for the individuals if they have faced trauma to prevent further future trauma and to address any past trauma they have faced. This training and expertise carries over in the care that is provided for clients receiving behavioral supports.
