Intensive Behavioral Services

Intensive Behavioral Services is a short-term (6 month) service that involves the development of a Behavior Support Plan for individuals whose behavior is greatly interfering with their daily functioning or whose behavior is a risk to their health and safety. It is especially appropriate for individuals whose behavior puts them at risk of placement in a more restrictive residential setting. The clinicians involved provide training in use of the Behavior Support Plan, which outlines how to respond to the specific challenging behavior more effectively. Following the initial assessment and training, participating families receive ongoing consultation from our providers.

Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Room

The Snoezelen Room is a Multi-Sensory Environment that is used for clinical sessions offered by Occupational Therapy, Social Work, and Psychology. Our Kingston sitehas one of the only true Snoezelen Rooms in the Hudson Valley. We have additional Multi-Sensory Environment (MSE) clinical rooms in Catskill, Kingston, Carmel and Ellenville.

Snoezelen is a multi-sensory environment that uses specialized equipment and a wide range of materials to offer a full sensory experience. It is particularly designed to allow a person the opportunity to make their own choices and initiate cause and effect reactions.

This process links to cognitive, perceptual, behavioral and physical processing with the control of sensory stimulation, choice-making and independence resulting in a sense of empowerment and satisfaction.
