Who is GANAS?
GANAS is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization operating in the Coachella Valley in Southern California. Our focus is to help increase the quality of life of those in need of evidence-based interventions. GANAS currently does this by providing workshops, 1:1 consultations, and peer-support groups to parents.
What makes us different? This organization was founded by two mothers of children with special needs. We at GANAS have the unique perspective of both the professional and the parent. In this view is how we can create a program that is both evidence-based and parent-friendly! See the details of how we got started here.
GANAS' vision is to improve the quality of life of those in the special needs, disabilities, and behavior excesses community by empowering caregivers and professionals through training, workshops, and ultimately providing evidence-based interventions. We wish to become the bridge that is GENUINE, will ANIMATE everyone, will help NAVIGATE new and confusing territory, will ASSIST in implementing these new and confusing strategies, and ultimately will watch everyone SUCCEED with confidence.
GANAS responds to the needs persons with behavior excesses have regarding evidence-based interventions through actively engaging and fostering collaborative efforts that empower all stakeholders to find effective solutions through advocacy, training, and implementation of evidence-based interventions to reach a common understanding and improve the quality of life for those with and without a formally diagnosed special need or disability.
