Our Philosophy
Collaborating    with    parents,    caregivers,    teachers    and    other professionals,     CBC     takes     a     client-centered     approach     and develops   individually   tailored   goals   to   accommodate   each   child’s unique   strengths   and   weaknesses.   Our   goal   is   for   each   child   to generalize   behaviors   across   environments   to   help   them   function to   the   best   of   their   ability   in   all   situations.   CBC   is   mindful   to always   provide   services   in   an   ethical   manner,   which   includes knowing      when      to      begin      fading      services      to      promote independence.
