Balancing life at work and home can be a challenge for working parents. That’s why Intuit offers Family Support, a collection of programs focused exclusively on giving assistance to parents, family members and caregivers.
Support for Children with Developmental Disabilities
We know how challenging parenting is—and it can be even more so when you’re caring for a child who has Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Down syndrome or other learning and developmental disabilities.
Rethink is a first-of-its-kind program. It doesn’t replace in-home consultation or in-person therapy. Instead, it supports parents and caregivers of children with developmental disabilities by helping them with skill building, positive reinforcement and care coordination.
Rethink is a global program that’s available to all Intuit employees. With Rethink, you can:
- Collaborate with and connect all members of your child’s care team (teachers, therapists, medical professionals and family members) through one platform. Each person you “invite” will create his or her own account.
- Speak with board-certified behavioral therapists, even if your child hasn’t been given a formal diagnosis.
- Access a comprehensive online treatment courses and over 1,500 two- to six-minute skill-building videos based on proven Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) strategies that aim to help you improve your child’s social skills, in-classroom behavior and more.
- Connect to peer support communities within Intuit.
- Track your child’s progress using quantifiable metrics provided by Rethink’s automated platform—and then share the progress with your child’s care team.

Cognition Builders works with adults and children with developmental delays, helping them devise their daily routines and schedules and gain greater independence through life-skill development.
If you have a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Down syndrome or other learning and developmental disabilities, there are plenty of resources in your community to lend support.
