Learn About Autism

Autism is a developmental disability, with autism the different areas of the brain fail to work together effecting normal brain function. Experts believe that autism presents itself during the first three years of a person’s life. Some individuals with autism have difficulty with communication and social interaction.

What is ABA?

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) focuses on how learning takes place. ABA uses positive reinforcement. When a behavior is followed by a reward it is more likely to be repeated. Techniques are used for increasing useful behaviors, reducing harmful ones and to teach new skills like communication, social and life skills.

Happy Cycle Sunday!

We’re officially in the final month of the Break the Cycle ride, so we’re asking you to help us kick it into high gear.

You understand the importance of the Break the Cycle cause. You know that children’s mental illnesses are real, common, and treatable. Yet today in the United States, this vulnerable population is caught in a vicious cycle of limited access to care, delayed treatment, and worsening illnesses. You are currently in the ideal position to spread the word to your family and friends about how Break the Cycle can make a difference for children and families.

Take action and demonstrate your support of children’s mental health (and invite your loved ones to do the same):

Decide today to be the best children’s mental health champion you can be and support the ride. Thank you for helping break the cycle of children’s mental illnesses.

Ride on,

Your Break the Cycle Team
