The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) strives to provide flexible, quality, member-driven services and supports. DDD continues to be a national leader for providing services to members and families in their home and community. Over 90% of the more than 40,000 individuals enrolled with DDD live in their own homes and communities rather than in institutional settings.
National Core Indicators
National Core Indicators (NCI) is a collaborative effort between the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI). The purpose of the program is to support NASDDDS member agencies in gathering a standard set of performance and outcome measures.
Family Support Annual Report
DDD integrates the philosophy of Family Support Legislation (passed in 1993) into all of its programs and activities. This Annual Report highlights the initiatives and systems that were successfully implemented, and describes the way in which individuals and families are supported through the Division and its many collaborators.
DDD Accomplishments and AMS Successes
AZ ABLE – Achieving a Better Life Experience
Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) account programs are investment programs that offer persons with disabilities, their family and friends, the option to contribute to a tax-exempt savings account for disability-related expenses. As of March 5, 2018, AZ ABLE accounts are open for enrollment.
DDD Health Plans
DDD is working on a Request for Proposal for an integrated plan our members can utilize for the most comprehensive care that covers all their needs. Here is a timeline. We will keep you updated on our progress.
Arizona Management System (AMS)
DDD uses the Arizona Management System (AMS) to improve processes that benefit members and families. Process updates are identified and created with input from members, families, staff and providers. Projects are then conducted in select offices to test and measure the results. Learn more about upcoming AMS tests.
