Our Approach to Services
Your goals are our top priority! While we get input from educators, physicians, and caregivers, we focus on the individual with whom we work. What do you want? What is important to you? What will be important to you as you move into whatever phase of your life is next?
Though we love Applied Behavioral Analysis, we acknowledge that some people have had aversive or negative experiences within the field. Our programming is tailor-made for your needs, drawing on a vast array of evidence-based programming to support flexible and precise interventions. We work to help you become the person you want to be, not to make you conform to arbitrary external standards. We believe that socially significant maladaptive behaviors are barriers to living a rich and fulfilling life. We do not do “compliance training” and wherever possible work on skill-building in conjunction with behavior reduction.
We are happy to discuss examples of our programming, therapy experiences, and answer any questions. Don’t hesitate to inquire about what makes Infinite Transitions Project unique in the field!
