Normalization and Service Planning
Bengt Nirje: Then, on the second level of the instrument, the principle can be used in the community for service planning and service organizations as to what is implied in this, what is needed in the community. It is also help in providing means and goals and objectives for start, personnel in what direction, what kind of [Inaudible], what kind of things [Inaudible]. So it's highly practical and useful to look at. Because when you do this, you can talk the same language whether you're in residential stuff or whether you're in a sheltered workshop or whether you're a social worker or an administrator because it allows you to speak the same language according to our problem. And that makes it easier to relate and handle things, and that is exactly how to handle it.
