Our Children Services Program achieves our mission by working closely with families and our multidisciplinary team to build upon each individual’s learning styles and strengths within a customized setting to prepare every individual for academic and social success
Behavioral services include direct 1:1 implementation of the behavioral support plan under the supervision of a behavioral consultant. This service addresses challenging behaviors that may put the individual’s health and safety, or the safety of others, at risk. This can be implemented in the home, community, or in center. This service can include transportation as long as it is approved in advance. Behavior consultation services are required in tandem with behavior line services to provide training as well as ongoing program maintenance and collaboration with the team.
This service provides the supports necessary for each individual to access his or her community, with an emphasis on social skills and community safety. GoldStar is dedicated to fostering positive interactions with members of our community and encourages community involvement. This service allows for transportation to and from the community.
Respite Care is an in-home or center-based service that maintains the health and safety of a participant while his/her caregiver is away. Respite care is provided within an individual’s home to provide for the needs of the adult receiving services during that time. Transportation of the adult in care is limited and must be approved in advance. GoldStar requests that respite be scheduled as a consistent and ongoing service. GLO will offer unscheduled respite care in emergency situations if appropriate staff is available.
Speech therapy helps individuals who have challenges expressing themselves verbally and non-verbally, understanding and/or processing language. The Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and speech-language pathology assistants (SLP-As) at GoldStar Learning Options, Inc. help our clients develop the skills for successful communication. These skills can affect all aspects of everyday life, from communicating basic needs to growing friendships to progressing in school.
GoldStar has been extremely helpful and supportive to our family. They have helped us attain various services and therapies for our son that have enabled him to have a more active and fulfilling daily life, not only when he's attending GoldStar but at home as well.
