Description of Services

Planning ahead can help guide a person with an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD) to lead a good life as independently as possible. A plan is important throughout all stages of life and especially in the future after the parent or caregiver is no longer able to provide support. To better serve families and individuals with I/DD in future planning, “Build Your Plan”® is a tool that enables families to create accounts and begin to build their plans within the Center.
