The Agency recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and promotes feelings of human dignity, a sense of self-worth and the right to make informed choices. Programs and services are developed and provided for each person with special needs utilizing an interdisciplinary approach. Individualized supports and services are implemented in a manner which is culturally normative and age appropriate and which focuses on individual strengths, needs, abilities, interests and desires. To facilitate implementation, services are provided to each individual in the least restrictive environment which is appropriate to his or her needs.
