The Inspired Community Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization providing no-cost early intervention services to neurodivergent children, advocacy coaching for their families, and specialized career training and certification support for Bronx community members in the name of best practice research!
We are creating self-sustaining, hyper-local, special education resources systems, of the community for the community through data-based decision making.
We prioritize equity by ensuring that every student, regardless of their background or abilities, has access to high-quality education. We believe in creating an inclusive learning environment where all students can thrive and reach their full potential. By providing personalized instruction and individualized support, we address the unique needs of each student, bridging the educational gap and promoting equitable outcomes.
We are dedicated to empowering individuals seeking careers in the field of special education. We offer comprehensive training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities that equip participants with the skills and confidence to excel in their roles as Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). By empowering them with the knowledge and resources necessary to make a meaningful impact in the lives of neurodiverse children, we contribute to their personal growth and professional success.
We support and empower families of neurodiverse children to become effective advocates for their loved ones. We provide them with guidance, resources, and training on how to navigate educational systems, access appropriate services, and collaborate with professionals to ensure their children receive the support they need. By empowering families with advocacy skills, we help them navigate complex systems, advocate for their child's rights, and make informed decisions about their child's education and well-being.
At The Inspired Community Project, our mission is to advance the field of early childhood education through rigorous research and evidence-based practices, workforce development and family advocacy coaching. We understand that early childhood education is critical to the development of children and their success in school and beyond. Therefore, we are committed to conducting longitudinal studies to examine factors that contribute to high-quality care for children, with a specific focus on workforce development.
Through our research on workforce development, we aim to understand the dynamics that influence early childhood educators' success and satisfaction in their roles. Our longitudinal studies will explore aspects such as staff turnover rates, job satisfaction, and professional development opportunities. By investigating these factors, we strive to identify strategies and interventions that can effectively support and retain skilled educators, ensuring a stable and nurturing environment for children's growth and development.
The Inspired Community Project's applied research program focuses on interventions related to social skills, peer-supported interaction, workforce development, and family advocacy coaching support. The program aims to develop and test interventions that improve social interaction and communication skills among children with developmental disabilities through peer-mediated interventions.
