IBHS Services in PA
What is IBHS?
IBHS (Intensive Behavioral Health Services), formerly BHRS, provides therapeutic behavioral service coverage for children in Pennsylvania through the age of 21 years old with mental, emotional, and behavioral concerns.
Different types of services can be accessed through IBHS such as ABA therapy, Group Therapy and Individual Therapy services including psychological evaluations, mobile therapy, and behavior consultation.

Who is Appropriate for IBHS Services at NeurAbilities?
IBHS services may be recommended by a medical doctor or psychologist for children with behavioral, mental, or emotional concerns. Services will be recommended based on each child’s individualized needs and medical necessity.
Children recommended for ABA services will receive an individualized evaluation to determine the intensity and frequency of services needed, based on research-based protocols of Behavior Analysis and CASP guidelines. As each child is unique with individualized developmental needs, goals will be developed per child based on each child’s individual strengths, deficits, and maladaptive behaviors.
The goal of the program is to provide services in the least restrictive setting and to create a functional family environment which maintains the child’s development. While intensive services may initially be conducted in a clinic setting to promote initial skill development, therapy will also be provided in the setting in which the child lives and functions, including the home, community, or school.
The IBHS Team at NeurAbilities
The IBHS team works with families and children, up to the age of 21, in providing biopsychosocial evaluations and behavioral services.
The IBHS Team for ABA services can be composed of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA), Behavioral Specialist Consultants (BC-ABA), Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT), or Behavioral Health Technicians (BHT). The team is supervised by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). Licensed psychologists provide expert diagnostic evaluations. The goal of IBHS services is to provide behavioral supports and skill acquisition in clinic, home, school and community settings.
