Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

​The Office of Developmental Disability Services (ODDS) offers services to adults ranging from supports to assist an individual to live in their own home or with family or friends, to 24-hour comprehensive services. Services offered have specific eligibility standards and are accessed through the local Community Developmental Disabilities Program (CDDP) .

An Individual Suppor​t Plan​ is established with each adult to identify supports provided based upon their health and safety needs, interests, choices and goals. Each plan uses a person-centered planning process. It's also important to understand and learn more about supported decision-making as a part of this process and how it allows a person with a disability to make choices about their life. 

Service Coordination

Service coordination support is provided to any adult with developmental disabilities not enrolled in any other funded service. Adults can choose to have this support from a Community Developmental Disabilities Program or a Support Services Brokerage. County Services Coordinators or Brokerage Personal Agents meet at least annually with each person to review their current situation, identify needs, and make referrals for essential services.

Support Services for Adults

Supports are provided through a Support Services Brokerage​ to eligible adults living in their own or their family's home to help them remain in their home and be engaged in the community. An individual is assisted to direct a person centered plan and budget and arrange for needed services.
