Department of Developmental Services (DDS)

Through DDS, individuals with intellectual disabilities can live in the community, rather than an institution, by receiving services tailored to their needs. Several waivers provide a variety of home and community-based services to people with intellectual disability or Prader Willi Syndrome.  Individuals who qualify for the program can continue to receive services as they age.

Categories of services and supports include:

  • home and community supports including personal support, adult companion, supported living, individual home supports and personal emergency response systems
  • respite and day/vocational supports including group day support options and individualized day services
  • employment services and supports
  • ancillary supports including behavior consultation, specialized medical equipment and supplies, non-medical transportation, home and vehicle modifications, interpreter services, peer support and assistive technology

Learn more. Please visit the Department of Developmental Services website for more information on eligibility, services and supports.
