At CCSN, our staff understands firsthand the challenges families who have children with special needs face every day. We understand that having the right support system in place makes a difference in both the child and family’s life. Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of a child. Our services CCSN utilizes EBP (Evidence Based Practices) curriculums to implement various skill building programs.
Our goal is to provide members with a quality respite program, family support services, after school programs, weekend therapeutic events, as well as improved behaviors and fewer inpatient days.
Mentors across all our sites have been trained and certified in the Evidence Based Program, Nurturing Parenting®. These programs feature activities to foster positive parenting skills with nurturing behaviors, promote healthy physical and emotional development, and teach appropriate role and developmental expectations. We are currently implementing this curriculum in all our facilities.
- CCSN assessors can perform a face to face/in person assessment on your child to gather information resulting in a written summary report with recommendations for a service plan. This may also include review and modifications of a service plan and assessment previously performed by an outside agency.
- Once a CCSN assessor completes an assessment, new member(s) can schedule services for that same day or another convenient time.
- CCSN’s goal is to maximize an individual’s ability to live and participate in the community and to function independently. Our Mentors teach independent living, social and communication skills to member’s and their families in our facilities or in the home. Activities in or outside of the office, in the community, are meant to enhance a person’s functioning.
- Examples of issues addressed include focusing on relationships, problem solving, anger management, social skills, boundaries, coping skills, positive behavior change, communications, etc.
- Services may be provided to an individual, group of individuals, or their families with the member present.

- Offering resources that range from adjusting to the person’s disability
- Developing skills to effectively interact with their child
- Understanding the causes and treatment of behavioral health issues

- Once a new member’s AHCCCS health plan has been confirmed, CCSN staff can attend upcoming CFT meetings.
- In order to attend a CFT meeting, it must include the member family AND the Health Home and/or PCP and CCSN must receive a completed, submitted and signed CCSN CFT form to be documented in the member’s record.
