Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities developed the Council’s 2017-21 Five Year State Plan. Self-advocates, families, state agencies, providers, educators and other stakeholders contributed their ideas and suggestions relating to the Council’s charge, “to ensure the opportunity to make choices regarding participation in society and quality of life for individual with developmental disabilities.” This information was considered in the development of the 2017-21 Five Year State Plan goals, objectives and activities. The Council developed and approved goals and objectives that we believe will result in systems change, capacity building and increase advocacy for Kansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities, enabling them to meaningfully participate in all aspects of life. The Five Year Plan will guide our activities over the next five years. KCDD has identified four Areas of Priority: Self Advocacy, Employment, Education and Quality Assurance.
