The NASDDDS mission is to assist member state agencies in building person-centered systems of services and supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
National Core Indicators (NCI) facilitates the sharing of information with the public to strengthen policy, improve quality, and compare performance with national norms.
When people work in their communities and earn good wages, opportunities multiply. Jobs provide people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to earn an income, build a nest egg, make friends, and increase self-confidence.
Stronger supports for families leads to better lives for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
