Free seminar details role of Developmental Disability Council

Clallam Mosaic and Clallam County Parent to Parent are hosting a free virtual seminar on Zoom dubbed “What Does the Developmental Disability Council Do?” set for 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30.

The Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) is a federal-state partnership working to plan for and with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It advocates for and implements policies and practices that help create life-long opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live as integrated and productive members of their chosen communities.

Council members are appointed by the Governor and serve for a three-year term. Sixty percent of the 27-member council must consist of persons with developmental disabilities, their parents, guardians or family members.

Join Jeremy Norden-Paul to learn more about the council, and initiatives like Informing Families Building Trust.
