Inizio: inception, to begin again

Our journey begins.  As we begin to craft an agency that provides evidence-based behavior intervention services to individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and their families, let us introduce ourselves.

Who are we? A partnership of two who are embarking on a similar path by providing cutting-edge interventions and service design flexibility that comes with the combined 42 years of experience providing evidence-based interventions to the community.

Cara Stearns Entz has worked for 26 years in the field of behavior intervention. Cara worked with and studied under the pioneer in the field of ABA; is experienced in directing three unique agencies: from the Young Autism Clinic, a foster care and adoption program for 11 years, and a behavior agency for 7 years that grew exponentially. Cara is a proven leader and a creative thinker with new solutions to problems and new strategies to improve the quality of life for clients, staff, and the organizations surrounding the individuals.

Sixteen years in the field of working with children and adolescents with developmental disabilities and emotional disturbances, Sally Torrens worked for 12 years in multiple capacities for an agency that serves children with developmental disabilities, including managing the clinical operations of the Los Angeles satellite office, writing and developing agency-wide programs and proposals for satellite offices, and spearheading new satellite office openings.

What is our vision? We will create remarkable opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to become contributing members of society. These remarkable opportunities will need to be experienced by the individual and by the family—our focus, the heart of what we do.

Why the blog? We hope to offer a source of information for those in the autism community—a resource of events, networking opportunities, research, and reflections.

Join us, comment, question, collaborate.  Let’s work together.
