Message From NASDDDS Executive Director and Board President

During this public health crisis, NASDDDS understands the unique needs and pivotal roles of our membership. We offer technical support, information sharing, resource vetting, and a forum for concerns facing our communities.  At NASDDDS, we do not forget the personal side of this work.  From the communities our members support to every person working diligently ensuring services continue during trying times, we want to send a note to thank you, your staff, and the community networks you support for your efforts during this time of national crisis.  While not searching for the limelight, we see your dedication, generosity, and intelligence each and every day.

NASDDDS continues to monitor the rapidly evolving international health crisis caused by the Coronavirus and the subsequent public health recommendations made nationally, by states, and within local jurisdictions.  The health of our members and the safety of our communities are our utmost concern.  We will update NASDDDS members if there are any changes to the 2020 Directors Forum and Mid-Year Conference.  We continue to stand with you as you work to ensure services and support for the I/DD community.  Please reach out to let us know how we can be of assistance.
