Jean Kidd of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services will be speaking at our next support group on
August 10, 2017 from 6-8PM
Jean is going to spend time going over “Extra Help” which is a Social Security program that helps people on Medicare save an average of $4,000 each year on their Part D expenses and prescription medications. This program:
- Reduces or eliminates the Part D premium
- Reduces or eliminates the Part D annual deductible
- Reduces the copay for prescription drugs
- Eliminates the doughnut hole
- You can change plans at any time during the year, not only during open enrollment.
We hope you will join us for this very informative discussion.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
Is a new program that the OKBTF now offers for behavioral intervention for children
(ages 2 – 7 years) and their parents or caregivers that focuses on decreasing externalizing child behavior problems (e.g., defiance, aggression), increasing child social skills and cooperation, and improving the parent-child attachment relationship. It teaches parents traditional play-therapy skills to use as socialof positive child behavior and traditional behavior management skills to decrease negative child behavior. Parents are taught and practice these skills with their child in a playroom while coached by a therapist. PCIT is time-unlimited; families remain in treatment until parents have demonstrated mastery of the treatment skills and rate their child’s behavior as within normal limits on a standardized measure of child behavior.
The Relationship Enhancement element of PCIT
Teaches the parents how to minimize negative characteristics within the relationship and guides them in developing new behaviors and communication practices that provide support, encouragement, and nurturing.
The Strategies for Compliance element of PCIT
Emphasizes effective and safe discipline techniques that can be used to manage the child’s behavior. The parents are encouraged to put these skills into practice until they can readily rely on them. Children who are subjected to these tactics learn how to adapt their behavior accordingly and most families see vast improvement in child behavior and the parent-child relationship.
Children between the ages of two and seven have been shown to benefit the most from this type of treatment.
Re-Emerge is a Cognitive Retraining Program that we NOW OFFER.
Do you suffer from:
finding the right words
feeling like you are in a “fog”
slow performance speed
Re-Emerge could be the answer
We provide computerized tasks to rewire the brain, bridging the damaged areas making new neuro-pathways. These neuro-pathways can reconnect the brain’s functionality, enabling individuals to regain their cognitive abilities. Specially trained oversight therapists can monitor, track and check the users’ progress easily and efficiently, prescribing and assigning follow-up cognitive tasks to be mastered. Cumulative performance scores can be printed out for documentation and reporting of progress, as needed.
