Our goal is to help you learn and practice new ways of doing things and develop and grow your skills in Choice, Voice and Control. We believe it is important that you have these 3 qualities in your life!

  • Choice: actively selecting options, alternatives and possibilities and making decisions right for you!
  • Voice: having your say, being heard, speaking up!
  • Control: making it happen, having the skills to put your choice & voice into action
