The Youth Intensive Educational Services are supervised and monitored by LPPC-S and the staff of the program includes the following:
This building wide behavioral health support is based on Nicholas Hobbs’ Re-Education philosophy and the 12 Principle of Re-Education.
This is a unique opportunity for children to participate in a positive behavior support model.
The use of these principles has been proven to encourage positive change.
Youth Intensive Services (YIS) has been providing quality behavioral health services since 2009 in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. The practice consists of Licensed Clinical Master’s level therapists and mental health workers.
YIS services Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties.
YIS has multiple contracts and grants with educational institutions, industry, social service agencies, Medicaid, rehabilitation bureaus, youth detention centers, and state agencies.
All of the students in the program will meet every morning and afternoon to touch base and discuss their goals for the day.
A social skills group will be conducted one time per week during the afternoon session. The topics will vary according to the group’s needs and level of functioning.
Each student will receive individual therapy at least once a week by a licensed counselor.
Students earn points for their positive behaviors and they can use the points to exchange for a fun reward. Buying will occur one time per week.
Family Night is held one time per month to engage the students and their family/ Caseworkers in understanding and supporting their child’s success within the Youth Intensive Educational Services Program. Each Family Night will focus on a specific area within the Circle of Courage and will be based on Hobb’s principles of Re-Education.
Ceremony and ritual give order, stability, and confidence to children and adolescents. This activity will occur one time per month (at Family Night) to celebrate the student’s success.
The mental health team will be available for a crisis, as needed.
Each student participating in the Youth Intensive Educational Services Program will be monitored throughout the school day.
