Our mission

DCO makes a positive difference in the community by providing services that enable individuals to reach and maintain their optimal level of development.

What that means to you is we are committed to helping each person we are privileged to serve to do and be his or her best.

Our purpose

DCO serves infants, children, and adults, who have developmental or physical disabilities, or developmental delays – as well as those who do not – through therapies, education, and habilitative programs. DCO promotes personal growth through teaching skills that help all citizens of our community to lead full and productive lives.

DCO also provides:

  • Advocacy that promote full inclusion for everyone
  • Awareness and information through public speaking, campus tours, printed literature, and various fundraising activities
  • Continued education for families, employers, and community related to developmental disabilities through training classes and presentations.
