Normalization is a concept that was developed by Bengt Nirje and Wolf Wolfensberger that changed the way that providers see the people that they work with. The desire of Normalization is to help people with developmental disabilities have the opportunities in life that anyone else would expect to have. This training will:
- Review the eight concepts of normalization,
- Talk about strategies the supervisors can use to put normalization into action, and
- Talk about how to coach staff to assure people have the best lives possible.
