North Carolina Sea Grant

May 7, 2020 | Katelyn Vause

Through June 1,  the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) will hit the virtual road from the mountains to the coast to gather input from individuals with intellectual or other developmental disabilities, family members, caregivers and other stakeholders.

The Conversations with the Council – Virtual Road Tour will help the Council to begin building its Five-Year State Plan by gathering input from the disability community to create goals. The Five-Year State Plan is the Council’s blueprint for creating a better North Carolina for individuals with intellectual or other developmental disabilities

NCCDD will host two sessions in each of three regions:

“While we would have loved to be on the road to meet all our community members in-person, having this input is invaluable to the Council as we develop our Five-Year State Plan,” said Talley Wells, executive director of NCCDD.

In addition to the virtual listening sessions, the Council will seek in-depth information through Individual, Family, and Community Stakeholder online surveys.

The North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities works to assure that people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of and have access to needed community services, individualized supports and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity and inclusion in all areas of community life.
