Clark County will assist all people with developmental disabilities to achieve full, active, and productive lives.
People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) are fully participating community members. This will occur in a community where each person is recognized for their gifts and contributions, where all are seen, and differences related to race, ethnicity, gender, orientation, age, ability, history, religion and/or nationality are honored and celebrated as a strength of the community.
People with disabilities and their families should have access to the supports needed to live, work and fully participate in local community life.
Services and supports will be tailored and customer driven. Individuals and families will have the power, authority and ability to personalize and direct supports to achieve a life typical of all community members.
People with disabilities and their families should have opportunities for natural interactions and participation in all aspects of community life.
Clark County promotes partnerships including business, education, service providers and neighborhoods to ensure all individuals with developmental disabilities and their families have the opportunity for formal and informal supports. Formal supports and services should foster independence and personal growth, while informal supports should encourage friendships and community membership.
