OUR MISSION

To empower our clients to make informed decisions about their lives through socially appropriate behaviors.

Social

 

When clients learn replacement behaviors, it increases their sense of dignity and self-worth, reduces social stigmatization, and provides them with greater opportunity to act on their individual preferences.

Professional

 

Our clients are empowered to make informed decisions about their future goals and outcomes through professional clinical assessments and recommendations.

Networks

 

Educating and training caregivers in proven behavioral techniques connects the client to natural support networks.

Support

 

Interdisciplinary collaboration is the key to addressing various behaviors and providing the highest quality of support.
