The New DDD Assessment What It Means To YouA
new way to evaluate and plan for supports and
services for people with developmental
disabilitiesStarting June 1, 2007
April 2007
2
What is the New DDD Assessment?
  • The new DDD Assessment is a comprehensive,
    computerized assessment.
  • It evaluates the specific, individual support
    needs of both children and adults with
    developmental disabilities who live in the
    community.
  • It provides information to develop service plans
    when resources are available.

3
Why is a New DDD Assessment Needed?
  • To assess the needs of each person with
    developmental disabilities
  • To help Case Resource Managers plan for services
    and supports
  • To give the Legislature and decision makers
    reliable and useful information

4
Why was it Developed?
  • A legislative committee audited DDD and
    identified the need for an assessment process
    that would
  • Be consistent
  • Be fair
  • Be equitable
  • Use an existing system
  • Clarify policies and standardize practices

5
How Will it Help a Person with Developmental
Disabilities?
  • The DDD Assessment will evaluate
  • The supports needed to perform personal care
    tasks and to participate in the activities of
    daily living as fully as possible.
  • The persons support needs for employment,
    behavior interventions, medical help and
    caregiver needs.

6
How is this Different from the MPC Assessment?
  • The MPC tool was originally developed for older
    people and was adapted for DDD to use.
  • The New DDD Assessment evaluates for things that
    the MPC Assessment does not.

7
Differences (contd)
  • The new DDD assessment is specifically designed
    to assess the unique needs of people with
    developmental disabilities.
  • For example, it evaluates
  • Family caregiver needs,
  • Behavioral support
  • Protective supervision needs,
  • Medical needs, and
  • Employment support needs for working age people.

8
Who will Take Part in the New Assessment?
  • The case manager will meet face-to-face with the
    individual and at least one other person who
    knows him/her well (most frequently this is a
    parent or guardian).
  • Providers are also invited to participate.

9
Who Has Helped Create The New DDD Assessment?
  • DDD has worked with many different groups to
    develop this new assessment
  • Individuals with developmental disabilities
  • Parents
  • Advocates
  • Service Providers
  • DDD Staff in the regions

10
What are its Benefits?
  1. Designed for people with developmental
    disabilities
  2. Asks the same information about all people who
    are enrolled in DDD
  3. Creates common data about all of DDD clients for
    use with the legislature
  4. Will be completed annually to maintain current
    information
  5. Creates an integrated, consistent assessment tool
