Through a grant funded by the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, (OPWDD), Wildwood provides In Home Behavior Support Services to families who have an individual with a developmental disability living at home who exhibits challenging behaviors. Services will be provided to families and caregivers to help them maintain their family member at home, and improve overall quality of life for the family. This program serves both children and adults. Behavior support will be ongoing and can continue for up to 6 months (or beyond as needed).
The individual exhibiting the challenging behavior must live at home with family members and be eligible to receive OPWDD funded services. The family must reside within a nine county region, which includes, Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Schoharie, Fulton, Montgomery, Warren and Washington counties.
