Working With the Task Force

The Task Force includes individuals with disabilities from all regions of the state who identify, address, and develop innovative methods to give power to people with developmental disabilities in advocacy efforts, decision-making and participation in their everyday life.

Based on the findings, the Task Force has prioritized the following three issues as the focus of its work across Ohio:

  • Increase membership of people with developmental disabilities on County Boards of DD; 
  • Increase leadership opportunities on DD Network and other boards; 
  • Strengthen the role of advocacy in Ohio.
