Cynthia Burrow launched Strategic Education Solutions in 2004. When her son was diagnosed with autism, she learned the beauty of the unexpectedly elegant solution, both in her son's journey and in her work. She rediscovered the fundamental truth that all learners are exceptional and should be afforded the opportunity to, learn, grow, and thrive.
Ms. Burrow has designed, developed, and implemented employment and peer support training programs for people with IDD. She has authored ground-breaking research on the complex mental health needs of people with IDD and on sexual assault prevention and response. Every project is grounded in the belief that people with IDD can and should live included lives of their choosing, and that in doing so their gifts will enrich society at large.
