image Brighter Stronger Foundation’s Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) Program is an intensive, individualized, service for children up to the age of 21,who are diagnosed with a mental illness or developmental disability. The program focuses on decreasing maladaptive behaviors such as; behaviors that are harmful to oneself or others, developmentally inappropriate, and disruptive or dangerous. TBS is provided in the family’s home and in the community. Therapeutic Behavioral Services include up to 40 hours a week of In-Home and Community services for the child and their family. Open to all medical assistance recipients. Private pay is accepted.

TBS services are designed to:

  • Prevent the need for an out-of-home placement when a child’s behaviors are too difficult for his or her caregivers to manage alone.
  • Reduce the need of a higher level of care.
  • Assist a child during a transition home from an out-of-home placement.
