Ali Al-Badry's interest in the Developmentally Disabled community began in high school. Many hours were spent volunteering at after school programs and throughout the summer. Ali's true calling was grasped after a journey to his homeland Iraq. During his time there, he was introduced to a family member with Down's syndrome. Face to face with the intellect disability he quickly recognized what a day in the life was like for someone living with an extra chromosome.
Upon his return to the United States, Ali formally launched his career working with the Developmentally Disabled. Employed at a group home for adults with high behavioral issues, Ali realized the need for compassion and progress. Indigo Intellecutal Services was formed to set a new standard in the Developmentally Disabled community. Learning others values equally is accomplished through the dedicated time spent on art, music, extended family home settings and one on one programs.
"It's extremely important to build a personal and compassionate relationship with individuals. I look to gain their trust and desire to make progress in life alongside them."
