Children's Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) is a flexible range of mental health and rehabilitation services for children and youth with emotional disturbance and their families. The services are for children and youth who need higher levels of service than standard outpatient therapy.
CTSS services aim to help children:
* Recover an age-appropriate level of mental and emotional development that had been disrupted by a psychiatric illness
* Self-monitor, compensate for, cope with, counteract, or replace psychosocial skills deficits
* Develop psychological, emotional, and intellectual processing abilities and personal and social functioning skills
Specific services provided to a youth and their family are based on:
* Diagnostic and functional assessment
* Child's therapeutic and support needs
* Family needs
* Family culture
* Availability of clinic, home, and school based services
CTSS services can be basic community-based therapy services, such as in a home or school. They can also be more intensive site-based services, such as day treatment. For families with complex needs and multiple providers, services must be coordinated with other providers or agencies working together.
CTSS services may include (depending on need and availability):
* Therapy - Individual, family, and/or group psychotherapy
* Skills training - Individual, family, and group skills training
* Mental Health Behavioral Aide (MHBA) Services - One-to-one service that helps youth manage behavior problems and symptoms at home or school
* Crisis Planning is the development of a written plan to help the child's family to contend with a potential crisis
* Children's day treatment combines psychotherapy and skills training for three hours per day
Provides both center-based and in-home therapy for children with Autism
The in-Home therapy program focuses on teaching skills to your child within their natural home environment. The therapists providing one on one therapy in the home setting utilize the methods of Applied Behavioral Analysis to teach new skills to your student. An important component of the in-home program is the opportunity for Family Skills Training where you and other caregivers learn the best methods to interact with and teach your child to promote the highest level of success. One expectation for the in-home program is that a parent or caregiver must be present on the therapy site throughout the entirety of the session.

YF-1800.0400Autism Spectrum Disorder Definition
A developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior, and includes symptoms that impair the individual's ability to function properly in school, work and other areas of life. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a "developmental disorder" because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. Autism is also known as a "spectrum" disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. People with ASD have difficulty with social communication and interaction (e.g. lack of eye contact, voice tones that sound sing-song or robotic, facial expressions or gestures that don't match what is being said), restricted interests (e.g., intense interest in numbers, details, facts), restrictive/repetitive behavior (e.g., repeating words or phrases, getting upset at changes in routine or sensory input such as light or noise). People with ASD may also experience sleep problems or irritability, but also have many strengths including the ability to learn things in detail and remember information for long periods of time; being strong visual and auditory learners; and excelling in math, science, music or art. But although ASD can be a lifelong disorder and while children who have ASD have difficulty in talking, playing with other children, and relating to others, including their own family, treatment and services can improve their symptoms and ability to function.
