Founded in 2009 by a special education teacher who saw a need to reach children beyond the classroom, Celebrate Ability is a company small enough to provide personalized attention, yet large enough to meet all of your waiver needs. Celebrate Ability offers a full range of wrap-around in-home services including Family Consultation, Intensive Individual Support Services (IISS), Therapeutic Integration (TI), and Respite. We do not believe that there is only one therapeutic approach for all children with autism. For this reason, our team of Family Consultants is made up of members with a wide variety of relevant backgrounds, including Behavioral Analysis, speech therapy, conflict resolution, communication devices, transitioning, and special education. By pairing families with a Family Consultant who is the best match for their child, we are able to create truly individualized treatment plans that is effectively implemented by our experienced team of IISS and Respite Technicians.
