The DC Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) weighed in on the Department of Disability Services' (DDS) decision to end its contract with the Georgetown University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities for the Developmental Disabilities Adminsitration (DDA) Health Initiative. In short, the DDC advocates for more communication and engagement with the people directly affected by this change and believes DDS has not allowed for enough time to appropriately transition services and supports associated with the DDA Health Initiative.
