Developmental Disabilities Services

Program Information

​​​​​Our mission is to help individuals with developmental disabilities and their families help themselves to lead safer, healthier, more independent and productive lives.

Developmental Disabilities Services (DDS) serves persons ages 3 and up who have a primary diagnosis of intellectual disabilities.  Persons served may also have other developmental disabilities in addition to intellectual disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, etc.

Community Services

Developmental Disabilities Services Division (DDS) offers a wide array of community services for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Services are individualized to meet each person's needs. DDS services are funded through Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers and through State funds.

State Funded Services

DDS offers a wide variety of state funded programs to assist with financial support, respite, employment and out of home residential care. These programs are solely funded through state funds upon availability.

Services For Waiver Participants

A waiver is a funding mechanism which allows the state to offer community-based services as an alternative to institutional services.  DDS offers four waiver programs. For more information on waivers visit Frequently Asked Questions.
