Meeting for people and families waiting for the Oklahoma DDS (Developmental Disabilities Services) In Home Supports Waiver
Created by family members for family members: The DDS Waiting List Meeting is a time for those on the waiting list and those who want to learn more about developmental disability services in Oklahoma can come and hear from the DDS Director, OHS leadership and other state agencies and programs that support people with developmental disabilities and their families. The “Waiting List Meeting” is a time for the director of DHS and DDS’s director along with other state level administrators, to meet with family members. State legislators are also invited to learn and hear from families. Families often share current situations affecting them during their time of “wait”. Then it gives the administrators and other family members a chance to help the family find services and supports to assist while the family “waits”. In addition to families meeting and speaking directly to the administrators and legislators who could possibly help, it gives the administrators and legislators the opportunity to hear what is really happening in Oklahoma for people with developmental disabilities. The Waiting List Meeting is more than for those waiting but for those who support Oklahomans with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Location and Zoom registration will be posted closer to meeting date.
