sprinkle28Hillcroft’s Behavior Support Services utilize a participant-driven team approach to provide support to children and adults with intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities and mental health concerns.

Behavior Support Services are provided by Behavior Specialists.  Behavior Specialists are masters level service providers who have studied in the fields of Social Work, Psychology, or Special Education and have professional experience working with individuals with developmental disabilities.  Hillcroft’s Behavior Specialists are passionate about partnering with participants to create an environment that increases the likelihood of success in the areas of work, home, and relationships with others.

The Behavior Support Service process begins with an assessment called a Functional Analysis.  The Functional Analysis is used to develop an individualized Behavior Support Plan (BSP).  The Behavior Support Plan outlines the participant’s strengths, resources and needed areas of support.

Behavior Support Services are provided through Medicaid Waiver funding.  Medicaid Waiver eligibility is determined by the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services (BDDS).  BDDS can be reached at 765-288-6516.  There currently is a waiting list for new Medicaid Waiver funding services.  Hillcroft’s Behavior Support Services are able to begin within four weeks of Medicaid Waiver funding being secured.
