At Developmental Concepts, Inc. we provide Habilitative Supports to children with developmental disabilities.  A child/adolescent (participant) will receive supports based on the detailed treatment plan created with the Case Manager at the Department of Health and Welfare.  Our Clinical Supervisors are active contributors in the creation of the treatment plan and will advocate for the participants we serve to verify they are receiving the most effective and supportive Habilitative Supports for their needs.  Additionally, our Clinical Supervisors collaborate with a participant’s physicians, educators, counselors, and other outside agencies to verify that the treatment plan is complimentary to their needs.  Further, our Clinical Supervisors will advocate for our participants to verify all providers involved in their care are adequately meeting their needs.  We believe collaboration is the key to meeting the needs of our participants.

Developmental Concepts, Inc. offers one-on-one Habilitative Supports to children and adolescents. The direct care staff at DCI receives extensive training with our Clinical Supervisors and receives weekly supervision to verify our participants are receiving the highest quality of care.  Our staff work with our participants and their families to create detailed weekly schedules based on their wants and needs to explore community locations they would like to attend each week.  Developmental Concepts, Inc. strives to support each individual to feel comfortable in various community environments.  Our staff will challenge our participants to meet their goals, but will also be empathetic and understanding when a child/adolescent is having a difficult day, as we understand how transitions and changes can be challenging.

Adult Developmental Therapy

Developmental Concepts, Inc. offers one-on-one and small group Developmental Therapy (DT) for adults ages 18 and older.  DCI’s Adult Developmental Therapy program is a great program for all adults including individuals who participate in Certified Family Home Services or Personal Care Services and require additional developmental supports. The DT program is a non-recreational program that offers individuals an opportunity to explore the community and engage in social interactions while working on developing applicable life skills. Participants in the DT program are given opportunities to participate in various tasks and activities that enhance their individual growth.  Treatment plans are developed to cater to an individual’s needs to increase their independence and to develop specific skills in the areas of Self-Care, Receptive/Expressive Language, Self-Direction/Social Skills, Capacity for Independent Living, and Economic Self-Sufficiency.

For individuals requiring or needing center based services without as many distractions as in the community, DCI also offers those for adults.  Our center also offers a full-access kitchen for individuals wanting to increase their cooking skills.

Participants enrolled in the Adult DT program are assigned a Developmental Specialist who works to communicate and collaborate with each participant’s support team to ensure that the participant is receiving appropriate supports to meet their individual needs on a daily basis. The Developmental Specialist will coordinate with the participant, the Targeted Service Coordinator, the family, and other applicable team members to create an appropriate treatment plan for developmental supports. The Development Specialist closely monitors the progress of each participant as well as offering additional supports as needed.

Our direct care staff receives extensive training with our Developmental Specialists and receives weekly supervision to verify each participant is receiving the highest quality of care.  Our staff work with participants to create detailed weekly schedules based on the wants and needs of each individual to explore community locations they would like to attend each week.  Developmental Concepts strives to support each participant to feel comfortable in various community environments and social interactions.  Our staff will challenge participants to meet their goals, but will also be patient, empathetic, and understanding when difficulties arise each day, as we understand how transitions and changes can be challenging as individuals are learning adult responsibilities.
