Behavior Support & Advocacy

OUR PROGRAM

Family Behavior Support and Advocacy Program will work with the family to develop a goal and identify challenging behaviors and other barriers to reaching that goal. The program will work with the family to develop, learn, and apply strategies and interventions that will aid in overcoming these challenges.

This program serves residents of Niagara or Erie County who have school aged youth living in the home who are eligibile for the Office of People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) services.
