HST 132-Chap 1
Hinsburger, Dalla Nora, Tough
The individual with a disability
Agencies were created by society in order to both serve people with disabilities and to serve the best interests of the community. Taxpayers have huge, and reasonable, expectations that the service we provide will meet both the needs of the individual and the needs of the community.
Serving someone with a disability alone in the community poses little or no risk to the community as a whole…adding sex offending behavior, however, does increase risk to and concern from the community.
