Welcome to Adapt
At Adapt, our mission is simple...to collectively provide the highest quality of applied behavioral therapy to our clients! We work on this each day through a commitment to comprehensive, individualized, and ethically sound, evidence based approaches and a dedication to the growth and well being of our staff. At Adapt we strive to teach individuals concepts, not just facts; to think and learn and evolve in their own unique way. We work to change behaviors...we work to change lives.
We are Adapt, and we are ready to make a difference
"People do not engage in self-injury[or]aggression solely because they have developmental disabilities.
There is logic to their behaviour, and functional assessment is an attempt to understand that logic"
O’Neill, et.al (1997)
"A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying"
B. F. Skinner
“If they can't learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn”
"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly"
