Third Thursday - Services Across the Life Span for Individuals with Disabilities
Third Thursday: Services Across the Life Span for Individuals with Disabilities
A Panel from the Ohio Association of County Boards
September 17, 2015
On this Third Thursday, parents will get an overview of the Ohio service system as it is set up to meet the needs of their children with disabilities from birth, through early childhood, through the school-age years, including transition, and on into adulthood. Learn about the goals of the County Boards of Developmental Disabilities at each stage of your child’s life and how your County Board may work with other community service partners to achieve those goals in your community.
The Ohio agency responsible for ensuring that individuals with developmental disabilities have the services and supports they need throughout their life span is the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and it’s network of County Boards of Developmental Disabilities (CBDD). As a parent of a child with a disability, your CBDD is the central agency concerned about your child’s well being—even after your child becomes an adult.
A panel of representatives from the Ohio Association of County Boards, the statewide association that supports the County Boards of Developmental Disabilities, will discuss the goals of the County Boards for individuals with disabilities at each different stage of life, and how the County Boards will either provide services or partner with other service providers to ensure the health and wellness of Ohioans with disabilities at any age.
Panelists from the OACB will include: Randy Beach, Strategic Planning Consultant, Susan Jones, Children and Families Consultant, Scott Marks, Community Opportunities Director, and Lori Stanfa, Medicaid Services Director.
