Philosophy

 

NSTM supports community living and assists persons with developmental disabilities in achieving their potential, as an alternative to more restrictive living and working placements. However, we also recognize that persons with developmental disabilities can exhibit complex behavior problems which may be overwhelming to them and to those with whom they interact on a daily basis. With this in mind, our program seeks to help families and staff manage those problem behaviors, as well as to teach adaptive behaviors to the person so that he or she can benefit from community living.
