Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Services
The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Services and Community Networks (CNP) Program at Sound provide a wide range of services to youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, FASD and other co-occurring challenges residing anywhere in King County.
Every person who comes to Sound is treated holistically through the lens of biopsychosocial and developmental assessment. We apply a strengths-based model with a focus on adaptive behavior strategies to help people improve their quality of life.
Our services include: Our Community Network Program for parents, guardians, and siblings; Supported Living Services for adults living in the community; Crisis Prevention and Stabilization Services; STAR – Substance Treatment and Recovery program; and Vocational Services.
Community Networks Program (Lifespan) – What is considered traditional mental health/behavioral healthcare service includes individual and group counseling, case management, 24-hour crises services, medication management, and psychological services are offered under the umbrella of this program. The difference is the care is tailored to meet the needs of children, adolescents and adults with IDD. Evidenced-based best practices are used in an adapted format to create accessibility and appropriateness consistent with the assessment of need. The name of this program indicates the huge importance of community integration and systems of care to the ongoing understanding and success in identifying the strengths a person, and their support system, has to move them to a productive, meaningful life.
Crisis Prevention and Stabilization Services – The Crisis Stabilization Team (CST) supports adults 18+, enrolled in the Developmental Disabilities Administration, and residing in King County who may be experiencing a mental health, environmental, vocational, or behavioral crisis. Counselors provide short-term episodic crisis prevention, response, interventions, and stabilization. Our community-based interventions and prevention services include a comprehensive evaluation of historical and current information and a host of supportive services such as collaborative contacts, after-hour contacts, emergency team meetings, and referrals to both planned and emergency respite. The goal is to connect and integrate supports and services creating a system where an individual can thrive and succeed while being understood.
STAR – Substance Treatment and Recovery: The STAR program provides Addiction Treatment and Substance Use Disorder Services tailored to individuals with IDD. These range from smoking cessation to inpatient treatment options for addiction.
IDD Services also provides training and consultation for community members, support systems, and individuals.
These services are funded through private pay, insurance, Medicare, and Provider One Medicaid, grants and contracts with King County and Washington State Developmental Disabilities Administration, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
