The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council has released a survey to identify problems and needs that should be addressed for Ohioans with disabilities across the state, with the online survey available at http://ddc.ohio.gov through Jan. 31.
The input will be used to develop the statewide developmental disabilities council’s Five-Year State Plan, a strategic plan that will drive the council’s mission to create change that improves independence, productivity and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities and their families in community life.
The Five-Year State Plan Public Survey is the first step in identifying problems and needs. This survey is directed to three different audiences:
• People with developmental disabilities;
• Family members and guardians; and
• Professionals and other stakeholders.
The State Plan, agreed upon by its governor-appointed council members, will help in developing specific grant proposals toward relevant projects across Ohio that will positively impact people with developmental disabilities, family members and guardians and other stakeholders.
