The Redwood Program
The Behavior Intervention Program (The Redwood Program) uses a collaborative model between local schools, families, and LCMHS to provide a wrap of services benefitting the student across school, community, and home settings.
The Redwood Program's staff included Behavior Interventionists (BIs) who provide direct service to the student, Service Coordinators who provide support in both the school and home environments, and Positive Behavior Support Specialists who provide clinical supervision for the Behavior Interventionists and develop the behavior support plans.
Services are individualized to the student's mental health and behavioral needs, while the child is accessing his/her educational program. The program includes clinical training and supervision of the BI, initial and ongoing assessment by clinical professionals, and behavior interventions that are grounded in the assessment and the positive behavior support plan.
Every student that is part of The Redwood Program is able to participate in our six week summer camp. During camp, students are part of group activities focused on developing new skills, one hour of academic work, and social opportunities out in the community.
The coping skills our students learn in The Redwood Program will promote longevity in terms of a better quality of life, a better chance for long-term relationships, and a better chance to be contributing members of their community.
We are providing opportunities for them to be part of their community, establishing a network of community supports. This network will give additional natural supports that they can access throughout their lives. We are teaching them to reach out for support when needed. Like the Redwoods, students learn that in the face of adversity they can be resilient and continue to grow regardless of the challenges they face.
As the students learn skills, they grow and become stronger. As the resilient redwoods grow close together to create their support system, so do we with our students, providing the consistency and dependability for them to feel safe, secure, and mature. As our students grow within our system they can begin to branch out to their community system and utilize the skills they have learned independently.
The Redwood Program combines school, home, and community supports to provide as much stability for our students as possible in order for them to be successful.
