Inherent in the values of DDP, embedded in the P.A.C.E. (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy) stance is our core belief that all people must be treated with dignity, compassion and respect.
Where differences of opinion, belief or culture exist, we choose to adopt an attitude of curiosity, acceptance and empathy to better understand those differences and perspective before we collaboratively move forward. We promote that all those we work with be treated without discrimination regardless of race, age, religion, sex, national origin, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status or source of payment.
Further, we at DDPI pledge to stay actively committed to making our community, training experiences, consultation services, parenting groups and therapy a more diverse culture that reflects the remarkable heterogeneity of the children, families, carers, educators and therapists we work with. We commit ourselves to actively integrate the ethos of diversity in our work and will continue to explore this issue and include a vigorous action plan for the future.
