MCC Specialized Wraparound Programs
These programs have been developed specifically for children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 21 who are either Deaf/Hard of Hearing or who have Autism Spectrum Disorder and who demonstrate significant related behavioral challenges.
The goal of these programs is to demonstrate and transfer effective intervention techniques to the child's caregivers (parents, teachers and guardians) so that more productive and meaningful interactions with the child may occur.
Our treatment team will assess the clinical and behavioral needs of each child/family to create a plan to help the child and provide emotional support, which may include individual or family therapy when needed.
This team consists of a Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC), who in conjunction with the family, develops an individual treatment plan for the child; a Mobile Therapist (MT) who provides intensive therapeutic services to the child and family and the Therapeutic Support Staff (TSS) who implements the behavioral treatment plan formulated by the BSC.
The treatment plan will incorporate the principles of Functional Behavioral Assessment and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and will focus on all systems in the client's life (school, social, home etc) for the purpose of demonstrating and transferring the skills and techniques necessary to enable the client's participation in those activities which their challenging behaviors may preclude.
Staff for our deaf/hard of hearing program are American Sign Language proficient.
We provide these programs in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Coverage for these services may be available either directly from the Department of Public Welfare (Medical Assistance) or through a behavioral health managed care organization such as Magellan Health Choices or Community Behavioral Health (CBH).
Many health insurance plans in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are now required by law to provide up to $36,000 per year in therapeutic services to children with autism. To learn more about these new requirements and to determine if there may be a potential benefit for your child, please give us a call.
