Red Hill, PA – When interventions used by parents and professionals from a variety of disciplines are linked to assessment, they can help ensure the mental and emotional health and welfare of children.
“We want to ensure that behaviors that may be impeding or disrupting a child’s functioning are understood using a careful analysis of all relevant factors that may be contributing to the development of the problems,” says Dr. Kimberly Rehak, co-founder of the International Institute for Behavioral Development, which provides educational, psychological, and behavioral health and support services.
Behavioral Health Care and screenings for children and families can help provide access to effective treatment. The model site was developed to continue to help others understand the needs of children from a different perspective and to start making changes in their spheres of influence.
“We have provided services to and on behalf of a variety of different types of clients over the years,” says Dr. Rehak. “We can look at the needs on multiple levels. So behavioral development can look differently based on what needs to be developed.”
Special education is not a placement; it's a continuum of services. A child’s needs can’t be predetermined nor can one predetermine the best way to meet those needs.
IIBD helps ensure essential services are provided, working with many teams in many locations to help design environments and implement services where children and adults can thrive.
