The mission of THRIVE! Enrichment Services is to provide the resources, supports and interventions that individuals who have challenging behaviors (CB) as a comorbidity to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) need to lead productive, meaningful and fulfilling lives with the greatest degree of self-determination and independence possible.
THRIVE! Enrichment Services is focused on doing three things: 1. Transforming Lives. 2. Eliminating Barriers to Inclusion. 3. Creating Opportunities.
THRIVE! is working to improve every aspect of life for people who have autism or intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD) with comorbid challenging behaviors (CB) by providing the resources, supports and interventions necessary for them to lead productive, meaningful and fulfilling lives with the greatest degree of independence possible.
Our goal is to help individuals who have autism and other disabilities with comorbid challenging behaviors realize their potential and fully participate in, contribute to and benefit from their communities. Our strategy for achieving this goal is to break down barriers to inclusion and replace them with bridges that connect people with comorbid challenging behaviors to opportunities to become valuable assets to our shared global society. One of the key mechanisms for implementing this strategy will be using recreational outings as a conduit for facilitating inclusion while simultaneously employing diplomatic advocacy to transform communities into welcoming environments.
Currently, THRIVE! is making an impact by raising awareness about this issue, and by providing information and resources for those who love, care for and interact with individuals who have comorbid challenging behaviors. As we build capacity, we will begin providing direct services to impacted individuals and families. Learn more about us by visiting bit.ly/HelpUsHelpThemTHRIVE.
