Mission Statement: Teaching those with developmental disabilities to live independent lives in their community so that they can be their own person, live their own lives, and experience the joy of doing so. Program Philosophy: D.E.S.I. believes the approaches to teaching individuals with developmental disabilities should foster autonomy and self-esteem. Allowing clients to engage in problem solving skills is allowing them to make choices towards an independent life. The process of learning is by giving opportunities to discover and understand the community one lives in.
Our services are designed to support the unique needs of our clients so that they may increase their independence, and their knowledge to become active members of their community as they integrate into every day activities. These activities could be tasks such as utilizing public transportation, attending post secondary education, acquiring employment, micro-enterprising, building appropriate social skills, learning about financial budgeting and any other areas in which assistance is desired.
