Position Statement

People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities have the same basic legal, civil and human rights as other citizens.

Disability is a natural part of the human experience that does not diminish the right of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to live independently, to exercise control and choice over their own lives, and to fully participate in and contribute to their communities through full inclusion in the economic, political, social, cultural, and educational mainstream of our society.
