SEEC’s greatest strength is our commitment to ongoing learning and self-reflection and innovation. We support people with developmental disabilities to be self-directed and active, contributing members of their communities. By initiating collaborations, we have an effect on others beyond those receiving our supports. We know and act upon the knowledge that investment in the professional development of our staff is key – to their livelihoods, and to better outcomes for the people they support. We are staunch advocates for the rights of people with developmental disabilities to advocate for themselves and live full, meaningful lives. We are equally dedicated to advocating for better pay and investing in the professional development of Direct Support Professionals who play a vital role in the successful assimilation of the people they support in all aspects of community life.
