Summary

At ICC we imagine the capacity of an individual with a disability when parents, teachers, classmates, support staff and the community have a wide and diverse range of tools to support the person in reaching his or her fullest potential. Our primary goal is to help individuals who struggle with social, emotional, cognitive or physical development in some way that inhibits their ability to forge relationships and fully function in our community.
