On Wednesday, November 28, OACB
was pleased to recognize disability and
elder law attorney Franklin J. Hickman
of the Cleveland-based Hickman & Lowder
Co. for his decades of work on behalf of
Ohioans with developmental disabilities.
The award—OACB's highest honor—has been
given only twice before.
From Nov. 28 to 30, more than 1,000 DD
support professionals gathered in Columbus
for the 35th Annual Convention. CPDUs
(continuing professional development units)
will be available soon. Presentations
will be posted in MemberConnect. Visit OACB's Facebook page to see photos
from the event.
New rules for Ohio's DD Waiver Waiting List
went into effect September 1, and county
boards of DD will soon be conducting
assessments as part of the new waiting list
process. To learn more about how the new
waiting list will work, click below to more
