SUPERVISED VISITS:

Parent Aide Supervision:  $50.00 per hour 

Therapeutic Supervision: $80.00 per hour 

Parent-Aide Supervision:  A parent-aide is not a licensed counselor/social worker/psychologist typically.  They may possess a bachelor's degree or master's degree but may only have a high school education.  The parent-aide will coach the visiting parent when needed or when the parent fails to engage well with the child.  Parent-Aides provide close supervision during visits and visits will always be with eyes and ears on the child.  Parent will not be allowed any alone time with the child. This is a one-hour minimum per visit cost for service.

 

​Therapeutic Supervision:  Therapeutic visitation involves a therapist observing interactions between the visiting parent and the child, intervening if the child appears to be apprehensive or distressed.  The goal is for the child to be in an emotionally safe environment.  A licensed therapist can assess, intervene, and correct inappropriate behavior, thereby teaching the visiting parent the appropriate parenting skills.  This may include teaching anger management skills.  In cases of allegations of abuse, neglect, parental estrangement, or suspected parental alienation the therapist can respond and intervene to meet the needs of the child. Therapists provide close supervision during visits and visits will always be with eyes and ears on the child. This is a one-hour minimum per visit cost for service.

Monitored Supervision:  Monitored visits are the least restrictive types of supervised visits.  These visits are not eyes and ears on the child.  Parent Aide or therapist is present in general area, but parent is given freedom to be away from the supervisor, but supervisor can still observe the parent-child interactions and become involved if there is a rule violation or safety concern. This is a one-hour minimum per visit cost for service.

The following is offered on a case-by-case basis and not a guaranteed service: 

 

Sandwiched Supervision:  This service involves typically a parent aide supervising at the beginning of your visit and then again at end of your visit.  The supervised time varies on a case-by-case basis but is at minimum one hour for each supervision.  This service typically is the step before a parent is granted unsupervised time.  (This service cannot always be accommodated but this agency will make every effort to provide this service).  Several situations factor in the decision if we can accommodate (location, time between check in and staff availability). We retain the right to decline this level of service. This is a two-hour minimum per visit cost for the service. 

 

Drop-In Supervision:  This service involves a parent aide or therapist checking in one or more times during your parenting time to ensure that visitation is safe and appropriate.  (This service cannot always be accommodated but this agency makes every effort to provide this service).  Several situations factor in the decision if we can accommodate (location, time between check in and staff availability). We retain the right to decline this level of service. This is a two-hour minimum per drop-in cost for the service. 

Supervised Exchanges:  This service involves a professional supervisor overseeing the exchange either by being present for exchange or facilitating the exchange with no contact between the parents.  Several situations factor in the decision if we can accommodate (location, time between check in and staff availability). We retain the right to decline this level of service. There is a one hour minimum for each exchange.
