Building Skills That Last a Lifetime

The highly trained team at RISE Idaho will help your child develop positive communication and social skills. At RISE, our staff wants to help your child and family achieve a happy home life and successfully participate in community activities. Our Habilitative Intervention Services include Habilitative Skill Building, Behavior Intervention, Crisis Intervention, and Interdisciplinary Training.


In Habilitation Skill training, we work with your child to develop, improve, and maintain developmentally appropriate abilities and functional skills needed for daily living.

Interventions are provided in either individual or group settings. Interventions may include teaching and coordinating methods of training with family members or other caregivers in a child’s life.

We utilize direct intervention techniques to produce positive meaningful changes in a child’s behavior. Our goal is to incorporate functional replacement behaviors and reinforcement-based strategies into a child’s daily living activities.

These services are provided to children who exhibit interfering behaviors that impact the individual’s independence or abilities, such as impaired social or communication skills, or destructive behaviors.

Crisis intervention provides training and staff development that is related to the needs of a child. This service may include:

  • Providing training to staff who work face-to-face with the participant.
  • Delivering emergency backup intervention directly with the eligible participant.
  • Developing a crisis plan that consistently addresses the occurring behavior and the necessary intervention strategies to minimize the behavior and future occurrences.

Crisis intervention is available for participants who have an unanticipated event, such as a circumstance or life situation that places a participant at risk of at least one of the following:

  • Hospitalization.
  • Out-of-home placement.
  • Incarceration.
  • Physical harm to self or others, including a family altercation or psychiatric relapse.

Crisis Intervention services for children:

  • Are provided in both the home and the community.
  • Are provided on a short-term basis, typically not to exceed thirty (30) days.
  • Must use positive behavior interventions prior to, and in conjunction with, the implementation of any restrictive intervention.

Interdisciplinary training is a companion to behavioral intervention and habilitative skill and is used to assist with the following:

  • Implementing a participant's health and medication monitoring.
  • Positioning and physical transferring.
  • Use of assistive equipment.
  • Intervention techniques in a manner that meets the participant's needs.

This service is utilized for collaboration, with the child present, during services provided by other professionals such as a Speech-Language and Hearing Professional (SLP), Physical Therapist (PT), Occupational Therapist (OT), medical professional, and behavioral or mental health professional.

RISE Idaho has the expertise and experience to provide excellent services in the classroom. Our staff has extensive experience collaborating with educators, parents, and specialists to deliver programs that maximize every child's learning experience.

RISE began providing Developmental Therapy, Behavioral Intervention, Behavioral Consultation, and Community-Based Rehabilitation services to school districts in 2007. Since then, we have worked diligently to build a robust, well-trained team of educated and experienced professionals and paraprofessionals.

Our services can mean the difference between keeping a student in their own school setting and having that student placed in a more restrictive educational environment. We ensure that our staff is capable, qualified, and well trained.

RISE offers the following School-Based Medicaid Services:

  • Behavioral Intervention (BI).
  • Behavioral Consultation for assigned students.
  • Community-Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS).

We also offer non-Medicaid services, such as specialized training for educators, assistants, and aides.

RISE welcomes inquiries from school district personnel interested in learning more about the services we provide to students.

Behavioral Consultation and School Personnel Training can assist educators in developing effective programs and behavior management strategies to help students struggling with aggression, inattentiveness, disrespect, impulsivity, or other disruptive behaviors.

“Your team of para-professionals is a tremendous asset to our teachers in the classroom by providing behavioral supports for our students. They are well trained in understanding a child’s needs and assisting in de-escalating disruptive behaviors.”

— Tara Handy, Former Director of Educational Services, Mountain Home School District #193
