We currently have a partnership with Alcanzando Perú, that consists of continuous professional collaboration between their staff and ours.
The partnerships include a close relationship between Alcanzando’s and Wink’s founders and directors, who work together to develop comprehensive programs based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. This includes collaboration to conduct and revise evaluations, design and monitor intervention plans, professional development sessions, and research.
Alcanzando Perú is a non-profit organization that provides educational services based on Applied Behavior Analysis for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. The 35 years of experience in the field of autism of the Director, have taught us the level and quality of services that are necessary for the children we serve, to reach their maximum potential. We know that these services are not yet available worldwide. Our mission is to change that reality.
