Key Assets Kentucky, based in Central Kentucky, is licensed to provide services within the Behavioral Health Services Organization (BHSO) and Private Child Caring (PCC) programs. Key Assets Behavioral Health and the Specialized Group Home Program: Children in Community Care work closely with our customers, community partners and stakeholders, such as the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), public and private schools, First Steps and Early Start Programs, pediatricians, hospitals, community mental health or other BHSOs and other community stakeholders to provide high quality services for individuals with complex needs. An individual with complex needs is often one with co-occurring diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities or Delays, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
The desire of Key Assets Behavioral Health is to be the safety net for children, families and adults in times of crisis. Following any crisis, it is important to provide ongoing support. This support may take many forms: assessment and/or psychological testing, targeted case management, and individual or group therapy.
Key Assets Behavioral Health specialists perform a variety of assessments including assessment for Autism utilizing the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2) and trauma assessments combining use of standardized measures (Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children and Trauma Symptom Inventory) and trauma-informed clinical interviews. Use of empirically supported assessment measures to complement clinical interviewing and observation is viewed as best practice and provides the basis for meaningful therapeutic intervention. Routine re-administration of measures throughout service provision assists Key Assets Behavioral Health clinicians with monitoring and ensuring treatment effectiveness.
The use of evidence-based practices is another method of ensuring the highest quality of service delivery, as is our use of a collaborative approach to service delivery. Our teams partner with each client and the client’s support system to provide meaningful treatment plans and to ensure that intervention efforts are tailored to meet individual and family needs.
We believe in brighter futures in Kentucky. Whenever possible, Key Assets Kentucky seeks to provide services to children, adults and families in their home or at our office. However, when children and young people cannot be safely maintained in their homes and are removed from their families and placed into Kentucky’s foster care system, Key Assets’ Children in Community Care program provides structured, community based options for these young people. We believe that by placing children in community placements (specialized group homes) that are well equipped to tackle complex needs in addition to trauma – within a therapeutic environment –children and young people can experience life to their fullest potential.
