APSI (Advocacy & Protective Services, Inc.) is a private, non-profit agency dedicated to protecting the rights of Ohioans with developmental disabilities. We advocate for the people we serve by helping to make their desires and needs known, especially when they cannot speak for themselves or if they have no other advocate. We do this by providing a full array of guardianship and protective services to individuals age 18 or older.
This guide, developed for family members of people with IDD, provides information to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in their communities. The guide addresses topics such as common goals for people with IDD for employment and community participation. It can help families and individuals understand the different types of day program and employment services available.
The guide is free of charge and can be downloaded here.
