There’s a Doctor in the House
Specialized Psychiatric Services
Behavioral Health disorders can affect everyone. If a person also has a developmental disability it can be particularly challenging to receive appropriate treatment.
At FCS a team model of treatment is offered that allows the patient with “developmental disabilities” to meet with the Doctor surrounded by their support team. The team members help the patient to affectively communicate the issues, follow up on recommendations and report progress or ongoing issues.
The support team is different for each patient, and can consist of parents, teachers, day service, providers, social workers, and anyone else that the patient feels can add support.
