Ever since Cultivate was born into existence, we had this mission of being an anomaly in the autism services industry. We wanted to play the game so that our staff and patients could win and thrive, and we were determined to never settle for mediocrity. We had the clinical expertise to ensure that our patients would excel, yet we really needed to focus on building an operational culture that was commensurate with our clinical excellence. That has proven to be one of the most rewarding and challenging professional ventures of my career.

To the whole Cultivate Team, the hustle is apparent. We grind on all cylinders, and because that's the case, we've made significant progress TOGETHER. You should be proud.
Many providers have a way of conducting business that's not conducive to learner progress, especially if the learner does not fit the model that the provider rigidly maintains. Note, there's a difference between conviction and rigidity. We at Cultivate have convictions as to how an ABA program should unfold, yet we're not so rigid to think that every learner will learn when we're using uniform tactics and strategies for everyone regardless of their needs and learning preferences.
When Bret, our good friend and website extraordinaire, suggested a journal for our site, I knew immediately that this would be a great idea. Why? Our field can often feel scattered and dispersed. This is a solution to that disconnection that we often feel.
