Our Approach

Throughout our history, we have learned there are three key areas that directly impact a person's ability to live life according to their own choices. Each of our programs fits into one of these focus areas.

 

Children go to school with the mobility and communication tools they need to access learning. High school graduates have the mobility and communication tools needed to be successful in the next stage of their life. Adults have continuous access to technology that maximizes their independence to live life comfortably and according to their own choices.
Children begin preparing for and working toward their post-graduate goals at middle-school age. Youth, who are not pursing higher education, have transition support to graduate from high school with a job. Adults obtain integrated community employment and have career advancement opportunities.
Children participate in self-expressive and playful activities with peers of all abilities. Youth move toward independent living while taking part in extracurricular activities that engage their interests. Adults have community-based, supportive housing, health, leisure, and wellness options that allow them to live full lives according to their own choices.
