Assessment and Analysis of the Service Needs of Washington, DC Residents with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

This report to the Washington, D.C. Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) and the Department on Disabilities Services (DDS) provides an analysis and description of the service needs of District of Columbia residents comprising two service populations:

(a) individuals with intellectual disabilities and

(b) individuals with developmental disabilities as described in the contract scope of work (see Attachment A on page 40).

The purpose of the project is to provide information on unmet service needs among persons with developmental disabilities as well as on the impact of extending eligibility for DDS services to all individuals meeting the broader definition of developmental disabilities. The project is being completed by the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (contractor) in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Research and Training Center on Community Living Institute on Community Integration.
