Welcome! The Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) believes that people with developmental disabilities have the right to live the life of their choosing. We want people who receive supports and services to be full participating members of their communities.  Everyone deserves the right to be part of  their community by interacting  with others, building meaningful relationships, having a good education, engaging in recreation, faith activities, and  advocacy, having opportunities for employment, and maintaining health and safety.

The DDA supports eligible children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families through its three Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waiver Programs​.

This page can help you find information about self-advocacy, resources in your community, and more. ​If you have a Coordinator of Community Services​, they can help you to navigate DDA services.
