January is a busy time for county boards
of DD as they organize for the year and
welcome new members. To help with these
start-of-the-year tasks, OACB has created an
online tool—the First Quarter Checklist—that
includes these items and guidance on
how each should be approached. Click here to view the checklist.
Ohioans with developmental disabilities and
their families have made it clear: our state’s
waiver waiting list needs work. That is why
OACB has joined a coalition of people with
developmental disabilities, family members,
and organizations representing guardians,
county boards, and providers who believe
it's time to Fix The List. Click here for more information.
For the past 50 years, county boards of DD
have been there for the people, families,
and communities they serve. To honor our
history of service, boards have come together
to take part in a special awareness,
education, and advocacy campaign about the
past, present, and future of DD services in Ohio. Click here to visit the Always There campaign.
