Family Behavioral Health’s Inspire Program
Aims to facilitate quality self-directed, personalized opportunities to learn and grow in whatever facets of life a person served would like to expand into.
To help each person served live a meaningful, fulfilling life with as much independence and joy as possible.
Knowing that options and opportunities are limited the Inspire program by FBH aims to provide an alternative option for service. A self-funded and self-directed model where schedules of services are identified and tailored to the needs of the individual served.
All learning opportunities provided are carefully tracked to indicate progress and are rooted in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Growth and progress will be tracked over time and goals can be tailored and modified to the changing needs of the person.
Services will be provided in small group settings- a ratio of no more than 1:4, to facilitate social opportunities in addition to personalized growth. Services are not mandated for 30-40 hours per week; a person has the option to choose a program that fits within their lifestyle and service needs to accommodate continued learning and balancing a personal schedule.
