Our Team​​

We serve as a bridge in the understanding of learning differences

We understand the unique strengths and challenges of young adults with autism and learning differences

Our team members come from a diverse background of psychology, counseling, teaching, administration, and related human service fields. Many have a personal connection to working with young adults on the autism spectrum or with learning differences. We understand the unique strengths and challenges that each student can possess.

Autism and Learning Differences: An Active Learning Teaching Toolkit, written by Dr. Michael McManmon, is based on 30 plus years of CIP’s methodology and the latest brain-based research. It imparts skills for life, school, work, and independent living within an active, participatory curriculum model.

Our Core Values

CIP’s Core Values anchor every aspect of our business in a set of commonly-held beliefs and commitments. They represent what our company stands for, what values our team of employees embody. These statements are deeply ingrained in our culture, guiding employee behavior, company decisions and actions.
