    • Embedded Technology. An assortment of technologies are available to individuals in Imagine! services.

    • An Emphasis on Skill Acquisition. One of Imagine!’s core beliefs is that every individual has the ability to learn new skills, and it is the goal of Imagine! to ensure that all individuals are supported in this, and that all staff are trained on how to provide this support.
