  • RFP#06142022- Mayer– 13-year-old male in Newark seeking a Homemaker/Personal Care and Transportation Provider- Level One Waiver

    A 13-year-old male in Newark is seeking a Homemaker/Personal Care and Transportation Provider. He has an outcome focused on controlling his verbal aggression when upset in order to engage in appropriate social interactions. It’s important to him to have some control over his own life, to be able to make choices, and to be involved in community activities with his peers. When demands are placed on him, especially to do things he doesn’t enjoy, he often lashes out verbally, typically while using curse words and he will occasionally say threatening things. It’s important for him to have strategies in place (redirecting afterwards, planned ignoring, visual schedules, etc.) to prevent or end the aggression. Having access to sensory input items and therapeutic equipment are very helpful to him. He has made some good progress in the past year and is rarely physically aggressive with things, but he definitely needs supports with his verbal aggression. He is interested in science, Star Wars, Legos, Batman, Minecraft and other video games, creative projects, Bendy, horror and gory stuff, playing flag football, going swimming, being in Scouts and his stuffed animal “kids”. Services will be funded with a Level One Waiver and offers a set schedule of 15 hours per week during the school year, 3 PM to 6 PM; and 40 hours per week during the summer, 8 AM to 4 PM. Mom would like a support person to attend an afterschool program (Yes! Club) with him while school is still in session and a day camp (YMCA) during the summer. He has a history of elopement, verbal and physical aggression; however, his school reports that incidents of physical aggression have been extremely limited this school year and only occur when initiated by a peer. He has only had one instance of elopement so far this year. Mom believes this may be because he is unfamiliar with the area (he attends school at New Story in Columbus). She thinks elopement may be more of a problem in Newark because he is very familiar with the area. He does wear a Project Lifesaver bracelet, but he is very uncomfortable with it. He does best when multi-step directions are repeated and broken down, directions are read aloud for understanding, given redirection to task, given visual supports (i.e. picture schedule, 5-1 arbitrary scale), given a visual timer, provided a sensory diet (could include items such as a disco seat, weighted blanket, etc.), and assisted with graphic organizers. His parents are concerned about his ability to become a safe member of the community, particularly because he lacks meaningful relationships and social skills. He gets in peoples’ personal space, frequently talks to strangers, does not use appropriate language, is socially rigid, unnecessarily concerns himself with others’ business, and has threatened to shoot or kill people for everyday things. Likewise, he isn’t always able to separate his imagination from what is real.
