Program Overview

Introduction and Purpose

At neuroHealth, we provide comprehensive health and wellness services for adolescents and adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. 

We offer four core services: Whole-Person Assessments, Health-Risk Assessments, and Nutrition Management. We address the often challenging task of coordinating medical, psychiatric, and other psycho-social resources for individuals and families. Detailed digital records are HIPAA-compliant and maintained for transparency, privacy, and effective service management.

Our team is comprised of peers and professionals with lived experience, we can relate to the individual barriers and needs of participants. We take a holistic approach, ensuring that participants have a dedicated team supporting their life goals and challenges. This includes providing person-centered, recovery-oriented, and trauma-informed care.

Nutritional Management

A central component of mental and physical wellbeing. We take an individualized approach, based on dietary and cultural aspects of the participant, and include the interdisciplinary team of licensed clinicians and medical doctors as necessary to ensure whole-person care.


Whole Person Assessment

A Whole Person Assessment (WPA) is a comprehensive evaluation on a participant’s life (like a case study). The WPA is considered a best practice and robust approach that integrates the science of how the body is impacted by life experience. The goal is to develop a plan to improve the participant’s quality of life and increase continuity of care.

Health Risk Assessment

A Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is an instrument used to collect health information typically coupled with the process that includes biometric testing to test an individual’s health risk and habits.
