The LiveWorkPlay organization has made a number of dramatic changes in their short history. This has to do with keeping in step with social shifts in the community, as well as leadership in seeking a more welcoming world for people with intellectual disabilities.
There are consequences to change, and it is important to understand and acknolwedge the challenges and pains, even when changes are made for all the right reasons.
