Our Mission is to support schools, families and community agencies in providing full access to life’s experiences for individuals with disabilities. This includes making friends, playing, accessing school and community, learning, loving, being loved, and living life to the fullest.
Every child should have the opportunity to share in the common experiences that are typical for children their age. For some children these opportunities come naturally and for others they must be facilitated and supported. "Access" refers to not mere physical access, but rather emotional, social, and cognitive access. By utilizing the natural supports in the given environments, and enhancing them through education and training, we are best able to achieve this access. Although facilitation and support may be provided, the goal is to find a match between the child and the environment without the need for artificial supports. We believe that through this process true inclusion in life can be a reality for all children!
