News / State of Ohio files motions to dismiss DRO lawsuit (Ball v. Kasich)

On June 27, 2016, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) jointly filed a motion to dismiss in the Ball v. Kasich lawsuit.  Governor Kasich filed a separate motion to dismiss later the same day. The remaining defendant, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, filed its motion to dismiss on May 9.

The defendants cite several reasons why they believe the lawsuit should not be permitted to continue. The state contends that past lawsuits have already settled the questions posed by Ball v. Kasich. A full summary of the opinion, including legal definitions, timelines for next steps, and other information, has been assembled in the form of an FAQ document for OACB members and stakeholders. OACB will continue monitoring this lawsuit very closely and will notify members and stakeholders of future developments as they occur. 

News / OACB, BHN Alliance, and DD Council release videos showing value of technology in EI

OACB, the Ohio DD Council, and the Belmont, Harrison, Noble Alliance have collaborated to produce a series of eight online videos showing technology's applications for early intervention practitioners in Ohio. These videos show how video and remote conferencing technology can increase efficiency of and access to early intervention services in rural counties.

OACB's team of children and family consultants helped obtain much of the technology shown in the videos and train practitioners on its use. OACB team members were also instrumental in the videos' production.
