Everas provides therapeutic behavioral support to people with Autism as well as people with other behavioral support needs. Services are overseen by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who develops plans to provide intervention and comprehensive treatment based on a holistic approach that provides solutions for the entire family.
Everas staff provide direct support that people need to participate in the community as well as develop skills to increase independence. Services range from support in accessing and utilizing local community resources, for example the bank or food store, to attending a social event or a class. Service plans are developed and overseen by a Master’s Level Social Worker based on the person’s goals and support needs and work towards achieving the highest possible potential for independence. Our services are available for people who require total care, as well as people requiring intermittent support and supervision for specific activities of daily living.
Support for families who are the primary caregiver of a person with disabilities is critical to ensure the caregiver receives relief to replenish energy and reduce stress. Respite services provide time for the primary caregiver to spend time with other family members and take care of personal needs with the peace of mind that an experienced and professionally trained person is responsible for their loved one’s needs.
Everas provides training to family members and people in the support network of care for people with specialized needs. Types of training include the use of medical or adaptive equipment, intervention strategies for behavioral needs, communication techniques, and sighted guide assistance. These trainings enable the development of natural support networks and ensure confidence in providing the assistance a person needs.
