AccessCNY’s Children’s Services are designed to help youth (ages 5-21) develop daily living and relationship building skills. Each of our services is personalized, flexible and designed to help kids reach their own personal goals. Our intention is to provide local families with the resources and supports needed to keep kids safe and comfortable at home, in school and in the community.

Community Habilitation for Kids
Community Habilitation helps children learn functional life skills such as cooking, healthy eating and socialization in a community setting.
Harmony in the Home
Harmony in the Home is a unique program for children with autism and their families who need guidance in managing challenging behaviors in the home. Harmony in the Home offers three programs in one:
1) Community Habilitation- A Youth Specialist will work with your child in accomplishing goals and developing daily living skills.
2) Respite- A Youth Specialist can offer relief support while parents/family have an afternoon or evening to themselves.
3) Assistive Supports- Harmony in the Home can help coordinate behavioral support services as well as reimbursements for certain approved goods and services.
AccessCNY offers psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) services for children with a mental health diagnosis and their families.
In this program AccessCNY’s trained staff work with families to identify a child’s personal goals, as well as obstacles that interfere with their mental health treatment. Children then work 1-on-1 with staff to complete “hands on” tasks that will help them progress towards their goals.
Note- You must be Medicaid eligible to enroll in this service.
AccessCNY’s planned respite support services provides short term relief for families/caregivers. During this respite time, staff will support the child in working towards their mental and physical health care goals.
