The On Your Mark Family

Adult Clinical Services

  Persons with a developmental disability have the right to an existence and a lifestyle that

parallels reality as the total population experiences it.  The clinical team at On Your

Mark is an interdisciplinary body committed to the Normalization Principle proposed by

Wolf Wolfensberger.  This approach assists persons with developmental disabilities to

identify and develop those skills necessary to achieve a goal of independence and

participate more effectively as inclusive members of the community.  With appreciation

for the “dignity of risk”, the clinical team focuses on providing the level of support

needed to accomplish these goals, while striving to ensure the physical, mental and

social emotional well being of the individuals served.  The team promotes successful

social and community integration through an emphasis on skill development, cognitive

growth, problem solving and emotional control.
