Are you driven to change lives?
Do you feel that you could be making more meaningful life changes in your client's life but aren't sure how to go about it?

Well, True ABAlities could be the place for you! We are a very small clinic housed within a private ABA based school in Cary NC. Our current clients are 6-12 years old but we take learners from 3-21. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of services to each of our learners and to make measurable meaningful differences in their current lives as well as long term lives. We focus from the beginning on building the functional skills necessary to have and keep a job, live as independently as possible, be an active member of a family unit, and be involved in the community.

We are committed and passionate about giving our 100% to every single client. With our small unique setting, we are able to focus on the individual needs of each client. We also believe that to be the best all of us must continue to grow in our skills and therefore we are a training focused clinic. We provide professional trainings and have a BCBA mentorship with the Pyramid Company, founded by Andy Bondy and Lori Frost, the creators of the picture exchange communication system.

We are looking for someone special, someone that has passion, drive, and commitment to bettering the field and the lives of their clients.

Climate Corner: From the Center for Behavior and Climate

Addressing Climate Injustice Improves Climate Solutions
Caroly Shumway, Ph.D.

The need for climate justice is evidenced by the fact that worldwide, disadvantaged communities often bear the burden of natural disasters, suffer more from food shortages, air pollution, and excessive heat, and are less likely to be able to move in the face of climate crises such as sea level rise or flooding. "Climate justice is a term, and more than that a movement, that acknowledges climate change can have differing social, economic, public health, and other adverse impacts on underprivileged populations," notes Daisy Simmons on the Yale Climate Connections blog. Climate justice requires us to think deeply about connections: connections among and between systems (e.g., the environment, human health, agriculture, energy, transportation, etc.), people, and solutions. Climate justice and its flip side, climate injustice, plays a role in all of them.

How does climate justice/injustice connect climate systems, people, and solutions?
