The Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities has received a three-year accreditation from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD).
This is longest accreditation period the state can issue to a county board of developmental disabilities and acknowledges that the services and supports LCBDD provides are in substantial compliance with state standards.
DODD representatives spent time at LCBDD in February, reviewing files and evaluating the agency’s processes for meeting person-centered service plans while helping people get engaged and connected with the community.
This outstanding achievement shows that LCBDD is meeting the standards and mission of a county board while appropriately using taxpayer funding to find innovative, effective ways to support county residents with disabilities and their families, said Superintendent Jason Umstot.
“Our LCBDD staff members are mission-driven and highly committed to the work they do,” Umstot said. “They know how to work together and strive for solutions for the people they support.”
