To provide resources and support to people with developmental disabilities, and those that care for them.

PARA provides workshops and training for our community to educate teachers, paraprofessionals, parents, and therapists who work with children & adults with developmental disabilities to help them understand effective Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) interventions. We work to create Community Awareness in our area by holding events and educating our community public places on developmental disabilities and helping them create ways that can help desensitize aversive social situations so our families and loved ones feel safe and judgement free.
