In all its activities it promotes full inclusion, self-determination and independence of all individuals with disabilities through research, training and outreach.

In addition, the Center also assures culturally competent, exemplary, comprehensive interdisciplinary services which are family-centered and responsive to cultural, social, linguistic, racial, and ethnic diversity needs in all the clinical and community services offered.
