Family Links

Many Family Links clients depend upon their Behavioral Supports Consultant (BSC) for routine and consistency. BSC Lynn Yocum has been instrumental in coordinating the appropriate behavioral supports for one of her clients, providing her with necessary stability in her daily life. Unfortunately, in the midst of the pandemic, the client’s residential provider ended the contract with Lynn’s provider agency, meaning that the client – who finds change difficult – would have to adjust to a new BSC. Concerned that this would result in regression in the progress the client has made in recent months, Lynn stepped in and was able to navigate multiple entities, including the County, mental health supports and multiple providers, utilizing a variety of virtual and physically distanced interactions. Her efforts resulted in a coordinated plan that will allow the client to continue receiving the consistent support she needs to remain happy and healthy in her home.
