The Inspired Community Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing no-cost early intervention services to neurodiverse children, advocacy coaching for their families, and specialized career training and certification support for those in the community.
We have created a self-sustaining, hyper-local, special education resources system, of the community for the community.
The Bronx has the highest early intervention referral rate in the state, but the lowest participation due to a lack of professionals in the borough. We are using a hospital training model to not only provide the services so desperately needed, but training and creating the professionals of, and from, the community.
Our center-based Early Intervention center (Opening in the Bronx Fall 2022) provides an interdisciplinary approach utilizing current research, and best practice of Applied Behavior Analysis, Speech, Occupational, and Play Therapy. Early intervention is FAMILY centered so we provide advocacy coaching, Special Education road maps for navigating the NYC education system and accessible resources.
Our staff can join us with little experience but through our intensive training curriculum, our classroom staff can leave us as Registered Behavior Technicians® (RBT®). A marketable certification that they can leverage for higher-paying direct service positions; and through our strategic partnerships, we then provide placement with our Programatic Partners.
