Rehabilitative and Community Supports (RCS)
Rehabilitative and Community Supports (RCS) is a skill building program for children with a variety of disabilities. This service focuses primarily on improving social skills, increasing independence with daily and life skills and how to safely regulate behavior.
Our goal is to keep families together by increasing the child’s level of functioning, skill development, while decreasing maladaptive behaviors.
A Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) provides direct care, one-to-one services in the child’s home and/or in the community; depending on the need of each child.
Each child is assessed by a coordinator, followed by a meeting with the family in their home or at the agency. After discussing the child’s assessments and reviewing all services the child and family is receiving, the team develops a quarterly plan of care for the child.
The plan of care includes the child’s and family’s long and short term goals for a three month period. It also includes the recommended number of service hours. During each session, our staff works with the child to meet his or her goals and objectives. At the end of each quarter, a treatment team meeting is called and the data is reviewed to measure progress. Based on team discussion, the treatment plan may be modified at this time.
These services are offered to families with children between the ages of 0 and 21 years old, living in Hancock, Piscataquis, Penobscot, and Northern Waldo counties.
