Share Your Success Story/Give Us Your Input

The Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council is interested in the experiences of people all over Missouri. We are a statewide Council that works to include people with disabilities in all aspects of community life.

In order to assist us in breaking down barriers to successful, integrated community living that allows people with disabilities to live the lives they choose, we must first know the barriers!

The experiences of people with disabilities and their families drive the work that we do. The Council is made up of self-advocates and family members that move the work of the Council forward. We need your help too!

Have you had a particularly frustrating experience getting a job, housing, healthcare or transportation?

Have the systems that are supposed to be there to support you or your family member created a barrier for them?

Have you had a particularly good experience that you felt allowed you or your family member greater opportunity to be involved in your community, get a job, a home or increase self-determination?

The Missouri DD Council wants to hear from you.  We collect information year round regarding successes and barriers that we will use in the development of our state plan. The state plan outlines the priorities and goals of the Council for the next five years. Your input is essential.

Please take a minute and fill out the form below. Dont' enter your name if you do not want your name used! However, we’d love to follow up with some folks regarding their experiences, so if that’s okay with you, include your name and contact information.
