The Developmental Disabilities Administration:

  • Provides a coordinated service delivery system for people with developmental disabilities
  • Partners with people with developmental disabilities and their families to provide leadership and resources to enable these individuals in living fulfilling lives
  • Is guided by the principle that individuals with developmental disabilities have the right to direct their lives and services
