Judevine seeks to be the hallmark for quality treatment and training – the premier provider for autism spectrum disorder services for children and adults, and their families in our region, state, and beyond.
Individualized Supported Living (ISL):
Provides individualized supports to people with developmental disabilities who live in homes of their choice. They may live alone or with roommate(s). Supports provided may vary from 24 hour support to occasional drop in support. This service enables people to be fully integrated into their community, as well as enhance their independent living skills.
Early Intervention (EI):
Works with children 5 and younger to increase their abilities to communicate and interact with family members and others in their life. EI also focuses on decreasing undesirable behaviors such as self-injurious behavior and aggression, by replacing those behaviors with functional prosocial ones.
