The Louisiana Developmental Disabilities Council is seeking the public’s input for its next Five-Year Plan. This plan will consist of Goals, Objectives, and Implementation Strategies to guide the Council’s advocacy, capacity building, and systems change activities for Federal Fiscal Years 2022 – 2026.
Individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and other stakeholders are encouraged to attend and participate in two Public Forums (Baton Rouge and Shreveport) being hosted by the Council in collaboration with our Network Partners, the Advocacy Center/Disability Rights Louisiana and LSU Health Sciences Center – Human Development Center. Whether it be individually or collaboratively, the Network Partners can address topics that affect the developmental disability community in the following subject matters: Quality Assurance, Health, Housing, Community Supports, Education and Early Intervention, Child Care, Employment, Transportation, and Recreation.
Please join us to share your thoughts on how we can move Louisiana forward by ensuring all individuals with developmental disabilities are integrated and included in all facets of community life. A light lunch will be provided for registered participants.
Although registration for the Public Forums has ended, it is still open to the public. Please make sure to sign-in when you arrive at the Forum. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you there!
