These services, which are focused on behaviors, are delivered in the home or community. They are usually best for children and adolescents whose behaviors are too serious for outpatient therapy.
Children and adolescents from birth to age 21 can take part in BHRS. Services need to be ordered by a psychologist or psychiatrist, and agreed upon by a team as the best way to help the child.
Services can occur on a daily or weekly basis, depending on the child’s needs.
Up to three possible services are available:
Behavior specialist consultants (BSCs), who have a master’s degree or doctorate
Mobile therapists, who have a master’s degree or doctorate
Therapeutic support staff (TSS), who have a bachelor’s degree
