At Optimal Beginnings, we believe that starting something new is a part of life. Every day people encounter new opportunities, people, ideas, and situations. In embracing those moments, we develop the behaviors that make it possible for us to live in this world.

Our goal is to empower children and young adults diagnosed with developmental delays so they can empower themselves; so they will grow to be independent individuals whose thoughts, opinions, and ideas are solicited, accepted, and valued.
