What is ITMS?

ITMS is a team behavioral consultation for individuals who have an intellectual disability and other behavioral impairments. To quality for this program the individual must be experiencing difficulty in their residential or work setting due to their behavior. The OMNI ITMS staff will work with the team on identification of the problem as well as creating and implementing solutions.

ITMS is a clinical team of four staff members: licensed psychologist, licensed therapist and two bachelors level implementation specialists who conduct on site sessions within the provider residential or vocational setting in order to consult/assist the team who is currently serving the individual.
