Focusing on the Front Door

Reaching out to find information or to get necessary services and supports can be a hard first step for many families. Two of the Community of Practice states, Missouri and Tennessee, have been working to make this initial contact with the state developmental disability systems a more person- and family-centered experience. Staff from the state Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) agencies will provide an overview of the changes they are making to the front door of services to better meet the needs of persons with I/DD and their families and to serve as a no wrong door to other supports.
