Why do you get out of bed in the morning?
At CRA Learning, we’re dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Our mission is what drives us to help state departments transition these individuals out of institutional settings. Above all, our work enables us to leverage our clinical skills and passion for education to make a difference in the lives of those with IDD.
However, this work is not without its share of challenges. At first, we struggled with a lack of clinical professionals who were comfortable or competent in treating adults with IDD. Then we realized the need for training and resources to help these clinicians create the impact they want to see in their patients’ lives.
We see a world where everyone belongs in the community. It’s a world where clinical professionals help individuals with IDD thrive in the community.
