North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities

North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities As one of the North Carolina's leading agencies in innovative policy and practice for individuals with disabilities, the NCCDD is committed to promoting full inclusion of people with disabilities into all aspects of community life.
The North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities is a 40-member, governor-appointed body and 60 percent of its members are people with developmental disabilities or family members of people with disabilities. Its activities are guided by the federal mandate to "promote self-determination, independence, productivity and integration and inclusion in all facets of community life" for people with developmental disabilities and their families. The Council also works to promote a community service delivery system that is personalized to meet the unique needs of each individual with a developmental disability through funding diverse grantees.

I am a sighted person who is looking for ways to volunteer in the blind and visually impaired community. I'd also like to be an advocate/activist. Helping local citizens and families make Greensboro barrier free! Sighted people truly have no idea of the many barriers people with disabilities must endure. I am more aware of such barriers because I participated in a program called "Partners in Policy making"- ❤️ Let me know what I can do to help Thank you
It is impossible to send message to you on regular webpage. It is specific question of personal nature and error message comes up each time with no directions in how to correct(text of noteshows in red sometimes then phone number then captcha shows expired!( Tried for 45 min.. extremely frustrating.
Hi everyone! I’m Julie from the Carolina Journal. I’m writing a story about provider shortages in NC. I’ve been hearing concerns about the shortage of providers that will see disabled patients who are covered by Medicaid. I’ve talked to other parents of kids with Down Syndrome, and they said getting a new provider was often difficult, if not impossible. On paper, they all have coverage, but I’ve heard the reality is sometimes quite different—especially with the disability waivers. I am hoping to find someone who would be willing to be profiled, to put a face on a population and a problem that sometimes seems invisible. If you have experienced this, I would love to hear your story. Please message me, and thank you for your help! Have a great rest of your day. Cheers, Julie Havlak [email protected]
