Self-development, self-determination and community inclusion.
OCL employs a Person Centered Approach (PCA) which promotes self-development, self-determination and community inclusion for the individuals with developmental disabilities who we support.
Through individualized services and supports, OCL’s philosophy on Person Centered Approach allows goals to be centered on the individual as opposed to processes. All goals are specific to the individual/ large family influence keeping in mind the individual’s culture, religious beliefs, personal goals and mindset.
