Building a Stronger Community to Support Those with Disabilities
It can be difficult for people living with with behavioral challenges, sensory sensitivities and communication struggles to access care and services in the community
Bancroft’s team of clinical professionals can help.
We offer behavioral support to schools, hospitals and throughout the community to help overcome those challenges – and ensure those with disabilities can receive the treatment or services they need.
Support in Hospitals and Healthcare Settings
Medical professionals and families with loved ones who have a disability sometimes struggle to provide timely and effective medical treatments in a hospital setting.
