After School Autism Program

This unique program is for children ages 5-20 who are on the higher-functioning level of the Autism Spectrum. Using a mix of individual interaction and group modalities, we strive to improve communication, self-regulation and life-skills development.

The children gain social skills through therapeutic play, as they use our program rooms.

This program operates daily from 4 PM – 8 PM, and Saturdays 8 AM – 2 PM.  During School breaks and summer vacation, the program operates on weekdays from 9 AM – 2 PM.

Behavior Health Rehabilitation Services

200x200Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) is a service that focuses on the behavioral health needs of a child in his/her everyday environment.

The treatment goals of BHRS are client-centered yet family-focused, identifying the needs of the child in the home, school and community and developing a program, which “wraps around” the child. Families involved with BHRS have weekly scheduled sessions with clinical team members in all settings relevant to their child.

BHRS is funded through Pennsylvania State Medical Assistance (PAMA), regardless of family income. Children from birth to 21 years of age can be evaluated for eligibility. BHRS is not exclusive, and can often be prescribed in conjunction with other behavioral health and intellectual disability services.

Clinicians involved in BHRS meet all educational, training and supervision requirements as outlined by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW). These clinicians also maintain current Child Abuse and Criminal Record Check clearances while working with PMHC. When you start BHRS at PMHC, you will be assigned a Service Specialist who will be your primary in-house contact to navigate the service as well as address concerns that may arise. Your child’s clinical treatment will be overseen by a staff psychologist, while your child’s clinical team will be led by a Master’s Level Clinician, either a Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC) or a Mobile Therapist (MT). You may also be assigned a therapeutic support staff (TSS) worker to provide support in the school, community or in your home.

To request our evaluation services, you can contact us by phone or click here to use our on-line “intake” form. Office visits will be required to assess both the initial and ongoing needs of the child. These office visits average four times per year. When involved with BHRS through PMHC, families also have the support of the BHRS Department and Quality Assurance Department to manage their case, address concerns and provide linkage to other clinical and community resources. PMHC also offers psychiatric consultation and medication management for some children involved with BHRS.  Psychiatric services are only offered to families actively involved in BHRS and are provided exclusively at our Pine Street location in Center City, Philadelphia.

School Therapeutic Services

School Therapeutic Services (STS) is a school-based program that provides behavioral support to children in both individual and group formats. STS enables children to receive support from clinicians and therapists within the classroom, as well as in individual and group therapy sessions.  The service is offered throughout the school day to support success in the school setting.

The STS program consists of Lead Clinicians, Group Mobile Therapists and Behavioral Health Workers who are available to support each child throughout the day, based upon the child’s needs. The STS team provides guidance and support to children and educational teams, and helps children develop needed skills, such as social, emotional, problem solving, conflict resolution and anger management.

By basing treatment on the individual needs of each child and working with educational teams, families and children, STS works to decrease barriers to learning and helps children succeed in their academic environment.

STS is designed to be a two-year program that helps children develop needed skills to increase their independence.

Adult Autism Services

Adult Autism Services is a specialized program that provides support to adults on the Autism Spectrum. The services PMHC are approved to provide at this time are: Behavior Specialist, Family Training and Community Inclusion.

  • Behavior Specialist
    This service provides specialized behavioral support for individuals who demonstrate behavioral challenges because of limited social skills, limited communication skills or impaired sensory systems.
  • Community Inclusion
    Community Inclusion is designed to assist participants in acquiring, retaining and improving communication, socialization, self-direction, self-help, and adaptive skills necessary to reside in the community. Community Inclusion facilitates participation in education and volunteer activities.
  • Family Training
    Family Training develops specific expertise in the participant’s family and his/her informal care network so that caregivers can help the participant acquire, retain or improve skills that directly improve his/her ability to live independently.

An individual can begin the process of applying for an Adult Autism Waiver within three months of his/her 21st birthday. The number to call to begin the process with the state is 1-866-539-7689. It is an automated system that walks you through the process of leaving information prior to receiving a return phone call. We can only provide services to those who have gone through this process and are subsequently referred to us by the case management agency after an assessment is performed.
