NEW!  Individual and Family Experience Survey
 
The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has developed a series of anonymous surveys to help us better understand the relationship between support coordinators, providers, individuals and families, and find ways to improve services. The  Individual and   Family Experience Survey  will only take a few minutes to complete and is intended to capture the perspective of the individual and his/her family in terms of their experience with support coordination services. Similar surveys have been sent to DDD support coordinators, support coordinator supervisors and service providers, to collect their experiences and recommendations as well.
 
The  Individual and   Family Experience Survey  will remain open through July 31 and  participation is voluntary . Survey responses will remain confidential and no personal information will be used. The data collected will be used to inform and prioritize initiatives to serve you better in the future. If you have any questions about the survey, or need to request a hard copy of the survey or over-the-phone translation services*, please contact 609.633.7762.
