Our Process

We take a hands-on approach that prioritizes families, the life-skill needs of the individuals with developmental disorders and their specific challenges to grow the individual, promote independence and build a self-determined attitude.


Our curated treatment plans help those with developmental disorders live their most independent life with access to programs and services regardless of disability, race, color, religion, nationality, age, gender,

sexual orientation, citizenship, veteran/military, and socioeconomic status.

Self-Determination Programs (SDP)

SDP gives families and their children with a learning disability the authority and flexibility over regional center funding, programs and services to meet a consumer’s Individual Program Plan (IPP) goals.

Dr. Cura and her team work directly with your family's regional center service coordinator to create a plan for your child's most independent and self-determined life.


SKILLS Developmental Services

From independent living and social skills to social recreation and early start programs, SKILLS focuses on all age groups to develop social and behavioral skills with supportive participation in group therapy and 1:1 therapist sessions.
