We value interactions, supports and leadership with people that are consistent with the CONCEPT OF NORMALIZATION. Normalization is “the use of culturally valued means to enable people to live culturally valued lives.” The concept of normalization holds that people with developmental disabilities ought to be supported in a manner that is consistent with what the larger community of non-disabled persons values with respect to age-appropriateness, proximity, and integration, in the attainment of life outcomes that are also valued by the larger community.
