About Us


Since 1979, AZTEC has been committed to providing high quality programs and services to over 250 children and adults with developmental disabilities. Our goal is to provide a caring and nurturing environment and to work closely with families to increase the independence, physical well-being and community participation for their loved ones.


AZTEC team members are dedicated to the philosophy that every human being, regardless of their level of ability, has the right to develop to his/her maximum potential.  Every person should be afforded the same dignity and respect as all other persons.


AZTEC services and programs will provide opportunities that incorporate a multi-dimensional and ecological approach to personal growth.  This approach also reflects the interaction of the person within his/her environment with regards to independence, rights and responsibilities, relationships, societal contributions, participation in school, community, employment opportunities and overall well-being. 


We understand that everyone needs to live a full, happy and independent life and we are dedicated to providing whatever support is needed to achieve success.
