The principles of Self Determination are the foundation upon which Delaware County Developmental Disabilities establishes policies, procedures and support opportunities for eligible children and adults. The Board has organized its Support Services across four developmental stages: Early Intervention, Family Support, Transitions Supports, and Adult Supports. The transition between each support stage is an important milestone in the development of each person. They mark a significant change in who is responsible to provide services and how services are delivered. In each stage the services are coordinated and managed by a professional referred to as a Support Administrator, who is the single point of contact for the client or their family. Support Administrators help the client, their family, and their team to navigate available resources, service delivery and funding systems.
