Our mission is to use behavioral science to create equal opportunities and meaningful change for children, families, and communities. Our SupportED program employs evidence-based strategies to increase school attendance and divert truant students and their families from the juvenile justice system. We work as a village to bridge communication gaps among system providers, and to identify needs, coordinate services, and implement individualized interventions to get kids in school and engaged in learning, teach adaptive skills, counteract missed educational instruction, and expand opportunities. SupportED blends the talents and knowledge of diverse partners and collaborators to deliver a community-based, rehabilitative approach to solving our nation's absenteeism crisis. Ensuring all children receive the education to which they are entitled by removing barriers and implementing reinforcement-based strategies is a critical first step towards breaking intergenerational cycles of school dropout, undereducation, violence, and incarceration.
We also provide behavioral and educational consults and workshops for organizations and service providers to help them enhance the quality and efficacy of their services.
