Waiver Service Provider Intensive In-Home - 22721
Description
Intensive In-Home Services Workers

Job Description :
The Intensive In-Home (IIH) provides services that help to facilitate the child's emotional and social development and learning. The IIH worker receives direction from the Individual Care Coordinator who assures the initial and on-going flow of clinical information between the ICC, the treatment provider and the IIH worker. The IIH worker supports the child and family in implementing both their Treatment Plan (from the clinical provider) and the Waiver Service Plan (established by the Waiver program) by engaging the child and family in ways that support the everyday application of treatment methods as described in the child's Treatment Plan and Waiver Service Plan. Specifically, the IIH worker reinforces desired cognitive and behavioral changes to prevent crises and to support the emotional well-being of the child and family. As each family is unique, strategies are designed to be sensitive to the family's culture and values and may include: anger management, socialization (issues/dynamics as opposed to functional social skills), psycho-education, post crisis de-briefing, re-enforcing the integration of safety plans in the home, parent-child relationship building, teaching parenting skills, providing support in emotional self-regulation in situational contexts, encouraging supportive sibling relationships with the Waiver child, developing healthy coping mechanisms, making healthy choices, inter-personal communication, building self-esteem, clarifying identity issues, etc. IIH Services may be provided in the home or in the community for an individual child and their family. IIH can be billed at the individual rate only, not the group rate.
