OVERVIEW

Behavioral interventions such as those provided by Creative Solutions for All Abilities enable individuals to exert more control over their environment and behavior helping them to attain realistic goals. Our company's mission is to promote empowerment. Our goal is to enable an individual to better express themselves in more appropriate ways to diffuse behavioral issues for themselves as well as parents and caregivers. By clarifying available choices, providing safe environments, teaching self-management techniques and independent living skills, we help a person to have more control in the environments frequented.
