- Assist all persons, regardless of age, race, ethnicity and gender, to develop vocational goals suitable for the earliest feasible age through the age span to where independence is no longer a feasible goal.
- Offer culturally sensitive and appropriate vocation/independent living services to individuals with disabilities.
- Offer treatment and/or training to individuals with disabilities that reflect the best and most effective methods available.
- Offer the full spectrum of independence/vocational services as appropriate to individuals with disabilities that will enable them to achieve their goals.
