Meet my reason why!

In 2006 my son Cizo was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two. I was an uneducated, scared, lonely, and single mother of four. Cizo was my youngest. The day my son was diagnosed I was surrounded by six different psychologists telling me that I needed to prepare myself for a long hard life of many Can’ts. I have never been a person that had that word in her vocab so I went home, prayed and built a game plan. I started educating myself on Autism, Behavior Management, ABA Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I worked closely with an RBT who guided me to where I needed to be for my son. Since 2006 I have completed my GED, worked with many individuals with Intellectual Disabilities in Behavior Management, Completed my Bachelors, Started my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, opened a new Alternative Living Program called Slate Family Services, and have watched my son grow into a young man that has Graduated High School, made many friends, managed a football team for two years in high school, cooks and cleans better than many of my other children, learn how to read, manage his own money, complete goals that he wanted to reach, and continues to work on employment skills, and his communication skills. Both my son and I have come farther than either one of us could have imagined, and now we want to help others like us develop the skills and tools they need to build a happy, fun, safe, and successful life. It is our goal to help each individual live their life to their fullest potential through Social Skills, Life Skills, Advocacy, Trainings, and Continuing Education. Our goal everyday is to Build A Better Tomorrow!
