Members only–As state I/DD agencies continually work to enhance quality services and supports for people with I/DD, there is a growing need identified among member states to increase integrated, community-based residential options that provide specialized treatment and highly individualized supports for individuals who present with complex support needs. Based on the level of interest NASDDDS members have expressed on this topic, NASDDDS will facilitate an Affinity Group for Residential Support Services for Individuals with Complex Support Needs, and want to welcome all state directors and/or their designees that are interested in participating.
The Purpose of the Affinity Group 1. Explore promising practices for in-home and small, residential options for this population 2. Identify successful interagency partnership strategies 3. Frame strategies within the guidepost of quality clinical supports embedded as part of the overall tenets of inclusion, choice, community, and self-determination 4. Provide suggestions on policy, funding and practice changes that hold the potential for positive systems change.
