SER de Puerto Rico has four community programs focused on: screening children 0-5 years old and well-being, mobility and independent living of older adults.

How do our Community Programs work?

The SER team of Puerto Rico identifies the needs of the community through community leaders, government offices, health, private or non-profit organizations.

The programs have social workers, physiatrists, therapists, psychologists, among others who travel throughout the Island attending to the needs of the population.

Pain and Function Management Unit

In the Pain and Function Management Unit, a treatment plan is developed to relieve, reduce, or control pain and help participants return to daily activities quickly without surgery or heavy reliance on medication. Techniques such as: ultrasound, electrical stimulation, traction, hot and cold compresses and paraffin, among others, are used.

Social work

The objective of the Department of Social Work is to collaborate with families so that they have a balanced family dynamic, educate families on strategies and skills to advocate for their rights and promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in all areas of society. .

Department of Behavioral Sciences

The Department of Behavioral Sciences is a multidisciplinary team that integrates science and practice in order to provide exceptional services in mental health care. We have Psychologists, including one certified as a Behavior Analyst, a Psychiatrist and Behavioral Therapists. We focus on the treatment of children and adolescents with a special interest in Neurodevelopmental Disorders. However, we also provide services to the community of SER participants in Puerto Rico according to the individual needs of each case.

What we do:

  • The Psychology team conducts Psychological Evaluations including Cognitive, Personality and Achievement tests, in addition to those necessary to evaluate and diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder. Individual interventions and consultations are also provided. These services are offered by licensed Clinical and School Psychologists or, because we collaborate with several Universities in Puerto Rico, by graduate students enrolled in Psychology programs who are training under the direct supervision of a licensed Clinical Psychologist. Graduate students include Psychology Interns who are completing the Doctoral Program in Psychology at SER de Puerto Rico.
  • Dr. Reyes, General and Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, provides specialized medical services including psychotherapeutic interventions and medications according to the needs of each patient.
  • Our Behavioral Therapists design and implement personalized behavioral interventions to increase the use of adaptive skills and/or reduce the presentation of disruptive behaviors.
  • The Research division designs projects focused on Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Our goal is to contribute to the wealth of current information on the subject with special attention to the Puerto Rican population.
