Team Hope is the official team of ChildFirst Behavior Therapy, one of the sponsors of the North Shore Autism Speaks Walk. We are a mix of autism service providers and the friends and family of children that are affected by autism. We are walking for our relatives, friends and clients. 2019 is our innagural year.
Join our team in raising funds to have a voice with legislators, to have access to the information and resources we need, to support research and medical discovery, and to help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks. Together, we can accomplish amazing things for people living with autism. Join the team and begin your fundraising journey today! There will be free t-shirts and possibly doughnuts!
If you can't join, please consider making a donation to one of our team members.
ABOUT CHILDFIRST BEHAVIOR THERAPY:
ChildFirst was created to serve the unique aspects of each child using scientific, evidence-based treatment. Our methods for treatment are rooted in the field of Behavior Analysis. Our professional practices and teaching techniques are always being refined by the most recent peer-reviewed publications generated by behavior analytic research. Our philosophy toward children is inspired by Person First language, taken from the field of Education. Person First Language emphasizes the importance of seeing the person before the diagnosis. In this way, we can see the child for the special person he or she is, wonderfully and beautifully made. We believe there is beauty in every child that should be celebrated, regardless of the child's strengths, weakness, or problematic behavior. Our desire to see the child first and their diagnosis second remains steadfast at the foundation of all treatment plans. At ChildFirst, we are committed to your child being successful, as he or she is meant to be.
