We Believe:

-that everyone deserves a voice

 

-that communication is central to connecting with the people you love

-that intrinsic motivation is more powerful than extrinsic (external) rewards and that external rewards rob us of the joy of communicating

-that an individual's preferences, interests, dislikes be honored and that therapy approaches should be tailored to the individual

-that therapy and communication should be joyful

-that communication does not just occur by using verbal words. Communication comes in the form of gestures, verbal words, gazes, physcial movements, pictures signs and each form is valid.

-that honest relationships are key to helping individuals communicate and connect with others more effectively

-that families and caregivers have valuable insights and are an important part of the therapeutic process
