Creating A Roadmap: What Do People with Developmental Disabilities Need and How Do We Get There?

October 06, 2011, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

A Needs Assessment Forum will be held in Baltimore City on October 6, 2011 at Coppin State University. Information gathered will help the Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD) and our partners plan for services and system changes.

The forum is open to consumers, family and friends, service providers, schools, resource coordinators, local health departments, local social service departments, clinicians, early learning professionals, and other interested persons. This forum, along with those held in June 2011 throughout the state, are a first step in the overall MCDD needs assessment process.

MCDD is also conducting an online needs assessment survey and we want your input. Please take a few moments to fill out the survey by visiting:
