Staff Philosophy

The Behavior Analysts and direct care staff at Strong Foundations are dedicated to supporting the development of all children. They share in their belief that ALL children provided with Strong Foundations, such as mastery and fluency in prerequisite skills, will be able to keep moving forward in becoming participating and functional members of their communities.  At Strong Foundations, we approach each child as an individual with their own strengths and one-of-a-kind needs.
