Resources

InteRACT works. Our clients demonstrate measurable gains in a variety of areas. They complete the program with improved communication ability relative to their specific communication challenges. Most importantly, they leave us with renewed confidence.

Why does it work? Because it's intensive. Because it's tailored to meet the specific needs of each participant.

Health care professionals and others involved in rehabilitation see more and more that intensive treatment is the best way to accomplish specific, measurable results.
