Welcome to CLiK and our website! We are excited to be a provider of services to individuals with unique needs, while supporting families and our larger community in the process.

We have dedicated ourselves to offering the very best services through our team approach. This means involving everyone – professionals, caregivers, teachers, individuals, and families – in providing person-created services that make a difference in an individual’s life. We believe everyone should have access to needed services, whether an infant or older adult.

We encourage your feedback on our services and look forward to working with you as we provide the highest quality of support possible.
