Providing opportunities for people with developmental disabilities and their families to enhance independence, productivity, and inclusion.The Council develops a State Plan every five years to address the most important issues affecting people with developmental disabilities and establishes its priorities based on input from people with developmental disabilities and their families. Initiative teams, which include members and staff as well as citizens, advocates, and other interested individuals, develop both short and long term action plans to address these priorities. The Council's success is measured by both its ability to achieve the outcomes established by the State Plan, and the real impact that these outcomes have on the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families. It is updated annually based on feedback from individuals and their families, and on state and national policy developments that may require a shift in Council priorities.
