Collaborative Work Group on Adult Developmental Disability Services
The Collaborative Work Group (CWG) on Adult DD Services is a group of individuals representing a range of service providers, advocates, agencies and policymakers that have come together to discuss and advise the State of Idaho regarding the service system for adults with developmental disabilities in Idaho and any changes that may be made to the system. The core of this service system is the services paid through Medicaid, but there is recognition that there are other services and supports, paid and unpaid, that comprise the “system”. It is important that any changes to Medicaid-reimbursed services recognize the impact that those changes will have on other services, supports, systems and lives.
By 2016, adults with developmental disabilities living in Idaho enjoy the same opportunities, freedoms and rights as their neighbors. They have access to a sustainable service system that provides quality, individualized supports to meet their lifelong and changing needs, interests and choices.
The Collaborative Work Group will be guided by the following values:Respect Safety Choice Quality Community Inclusion
The Collaborative Work Group is coordinated by the Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities. It is led by a Steering Committee of 8 individuals. There are also various subcommittees that will be working on specific issues.
