Abacus Learning believes in making complex concepts experiential and simple. Just the way an Abacus helps make mathematical concepts experiential, simple yet faster, we envision that our methods will help make the complex behavioral concepts and interventions simple but at the same time they will be internalized by the participants making them readily available for use. The method develops amongst the participants an ownership of the concept.
Our mission is to provide quality services to our clients, based on the in-depth knowledge of our team members.
