Person-Centered Support

Person-centered support means that our starting and ending point is always how to help a person with a developmental disability live the life they choose to live. Our focus is on supporting the individual to achieve personal goals and dreams. We work in tandem with family members and others as identified by the individual.

A person-centered approach asks the individual about personal preferences, goals and dreams. This kind of approach celebrates all of life’s possibilities for the individual. It is an attitude that says “how can we help you live the life you desire the most?”
