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.
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.
Our National Office provides both strategic direction and operational support in key areas such as admissions, marketing, finance, human resources, student services, and overall customer experience. The National Office develops and implements quality standards and best practices enabling staff to fully support our centers and meet our student’s programming needs.
At CIP, we create and maintain strong relationships with our community allowing us to mentor and guide through the transition from adolescence to adulthood. CIP’s interdisciplinary team of staff delivers our abilities program through a student-centered approach. Each member of the CIP team models self-care and self-regulation and upholds high standards of practice with the students and families we serve.

Why work with CIP? For the past 35+ years, we’ve been delivering on our vision to challenge the norms of what young adults with learning differences can achieve. We’re looking for people with a passion, not just a list of skill sets.
