Scope of Work:
The IDD Medicaid Waiver Program contract calls for us to supports individuals with intellectual disabilities from ages 64 to 19 years. Intellectual disability is characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning (reasoning, learning, problem solving) and in adaptive behavior, which covers a range of everyday social and practical skills. As a DDA contractor we attempt to ensure our clients have the most independence, choice and control over their own lives through person-centered service planning and delivery and increased provider capacity. DDA coordinates home and community services for over 2,000 individuals so each person can live and work in the neighborhood of his or her choosing, and promotes health, wellness and a high quality of life through service coordination and monitoring, clinical supports, and a robust quality management program.

Additionally, we offer skill development and support to help people with intellectual disabilities gain employment, start a business, volunteer, attend senior citizens programs or receive support throughout the day. Adults are supported to live full and inclusive lives throughout the community in homes and apartments, and, for families supporting a loved one at home, DDA also provides support services such as temporary relief for the family, in-home and community support, emergency response systems, and home and vehicle modification assistance
