IDS has been serving families affected by autism, developmental disabilities, behavioral challenges, and childhood mental health challenges since 1999.

The individuals in our autism treatment programs range from toddlers through young adults, and our approach to intervention has always involved active participation by families.

Today we work with all major funding sources including private insurance and Medicaid / Forward Health to support individuals from early childhood through adulthood, providing comprehensive programming, targeted skill development and individualized behavior interventions in center, home, community and school settings.  We are committed to providing effective, evidence-based treatment in a supportive and engaging environment through the use of family friendly methods, consistent family involvement and state of the art procedures.

IDS is a Certified Outpatient Mental Health Clinic, regulated by the Department of Heath Services and audited every 2 years by the Division of Quality Assurance-Behavioral Health Unit. Our clinical practices comply with Administrative Rule HFS 35.
