Serving Wisconsin and Beyond
We at Supportable Solutions believe that to best care for and support the development of all individuals, we need to shift the paradigm away from behaviorism and compliance-driven interventions and towards present-day approaches that are current with what we know now. When we know better, we need to do better! This means moving towards strength-based approaches that are relationship-driven, neuroscience-aligned, trauma-sensitive and neurodiversity-affirming.
If you are a change maker, trying to support this paradigm shift in your school, home, or community, we hope these resources provide you with some comfort that you are not alone and the reassurance that you are on the right path!
Together we can make the change that’s so desperately needed.
