About Behavior Supports

Behavior Supports helps individuals gain the skills they need to decrease problem behaviors and increase independence. We provide hands-on supports that are unique to each individual.  

  • Treatment modality: MDS believes in a hands-on approach to providing behavior supports. We value partnering with clients and families to provide the best possible services. We always provide services under the positive behavior supports model and take a strength-based approached to our behavior management services.
  • Population served: MDS provides behavior supports to children and adults. We primarily provide behavior supports to individuals with developmental disabilities, often times with a co-occurring mental health issue. We serve all ages and levels of disability.
  • Settings: MDS's behavior supports services are primarily home-based, although consultants will assess and provide services in any environment where the individual spends time, including work, school, residential settings, day service sites and the community.
  • Credentialing of staff: All behavior consultants must have a Master’s Degree in social work, special education, psychology, counseling, ABA or a related field.
  • Hours of service: Primarily Monday – Friday 7am – 8pm, although sometimes services will take place on the weekends or later at night as dictated by client needs.
  • Frequency of service: Behavior supports are determined by the budget allocation and also the level of need. Clients are typically are allotted between 3 and 12 hours of behavior supports a month.
  • Payer sources: Behavior supports is funded through the Medicaid waiver. Private pay is also an option.
  • Fees: The Medicaid Waiver reimburses $18.20 per quarter hour for behavior support services. The private pay rate is $100 per hour.
  • Referral sources: We receive referrals from case managers, families and friends, social media, online searches, word of mouth, pick lists and other team members.
