  • Flexible appointment times
  • Family-focused sessions to provide parents with practical tips for handling a child’s behavioral disorder at home and in the community
  • Wraparound care connecting families with a variety of appropriate mental health resources
  • LSI therapists are available to meet in person or virtually through telehealth

But his LSI Behavioral Health Intervention Services worker, Jose, is using games and songs to lift up Jaimee. Each week, Jose plays a new card or board game with Jaimee as a way to help him stay focused for longer periods of time. Meanwhile, Jaimee is learning new songs to help him stay calm in stressful situations. When it’s time to get up every morning, he sings a song to wake up and start the day.
