Division of Developmental Disabilities.
DDD is a state agency that can play a vital role in funding supported employment services. Depending upon the funding realities of the times, DDD has typically been able to pay for the long term support, i.e., the on-going support needed by the supported employee or employer to maintain and enhance his/her job. However, there are no guarantees that DDD will have the resources to continue this funding role in the future.
DDD also offers case management services and can help coordinate resources such as Medicaid Personal Care and Adult Family Homes. Students and their families are encouraged to apply for DDD services as early as needed, but no later than age 18. DDD funded employment services do not typically kick in until a student has left school and has turned 21 years old. is in Region 4.
