Emotional, Cognitive and Developmental Disabilities (ECDD)

Emotional, Cognitive and Developmental Disabilities (ECDD)

When in need of specialized support, we are here.

Our Baltimore and Denton residential group homes take a relationship-based approach in support of youth who present with Emotional, Cognitive and Developmental Disabilities (ECDD).

This range of needs might include:

  • Acute Medical Issues
  • Emotional and Developmental Delays
  • Lower Cognitive Function
  • Self-Injurious Behaviors
  • Assistance with Daily Living Skills
  • Increased Emotional Support
  • Poor Peer and Social Interactions
  • Requires Nontraditional or Private Education
  • Speech and Language Delays

Treatment Design

Recovery from trauma can be complicated and varied from person to person. We utilize a relationship-based approach to treatment, incorporating clinical interventions such as:

  • Psychoeducation
  • Trauma narration
  • Group treatment
  • Cognitive restructuring
  • Development of coping and stress tolerance skills
  • Post-treatment planning

New Skill Development

We utilize Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) throughout our high-intensity rehabilitation services. PBIS builds life skills and personal development skills that individuals carry with them beyond the treatment setting.

ECDD Program Goals

  • Assist youth with gaining independence in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
  • Support youth in developing emotional regulation and coping skills
  • Help youth to establish permanency by transitioning to natural supports or within the Everstand continuum of care 
  • Promote lasting impact through post-discharge services at 30, 60, and 90 days
