Supporting Success is a behavior support program that helps individuals ages 3 and up develop skills and eliminate challenging behaviors that often exclude them from activities and opportunities. Our Behavior Specialists work in people’s homes and in the community. Some examples of behaviors Supporting Success can support include:

  • Self-injurious behavior

Supporting Success is not available to people living in certified settings including IRAs, Family Care, Foster Care, Adult Homes or that live independently.
