Families Experiencing Problems with Transition to DDD's New Services System

on Fri, 04/18/2014 - 15:44

Families have been experiencing confusion on how to address the changes in the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), especially the 2013 graduates “interim group.”  Please note that the timeline for upcoming 2014 graduates can be found at www.state.nj.us/humanservices/ddd/documents/Documents%20for%20Web/Timeline%20factsheet.pdf. To maintain DDD services, the adult child with a developmental disability now has to be eligible for Medicaid.  Instead of DDD case managers, families now have Support Coordinators, although DDD case managers are still helping with some issues such as transition.  Information on the Supports Program, including the list of Support Coordinators and the Support Coordination Selection Form can be found at http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/ddd/programs/supportsprgm.html.You can read more about the problems families are facing and some potential steps to address those concerns at www.spanadvocacy.org/content/ddd-transition-concerns-fact-sheet-2014.  If you are still experiencing problems, you can fill out and subit the Arc Problem Reporting Form which can be found at www.spanadvocacy.org/content/ddd-concerns-problem-reporting-form
