Supporting Success is a behavior support program that helps individuals develop skills and eliminate challenging behaviors that often exclude them from activities and opportunities. A key component of Supporting Success is our ability to work with families. Our Behavior Specialists work in people’s homes and in the community. Some examples of behaviors Supporting Success can support include:
- Self-injurious behavior
- Aggression towards others
- Safety issues

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