"Value in Us All: Advancing Inclusive Practices"

This year's theme focuses on the dignity and inclusion of service recipients and their families. Inclusive practices value the unique cultural identities, positive characteristics, hopes, and dreams of individuals and their families. Promoting an understanding of diversity and community occurs within the context of rigorous standards for effective services and supports. The 2019 SNTI will build capacity and partnerships for inclusive communities.
