From the NJ Council on Developmental Disabilities:

“Every five years, the New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities develops a State Plan that reflects a comprehensive review of major service systems and issues as they affect children, teens, and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families in New Jersey. The State Plan is developed in accordance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act). The Council’s work centers around system change activities.

The plan is important because it outlines goals, objectives, and activities that the NJCDD will implement in order to bring about system change. The State Plan guides the work of the Council and drives decisions about how staff and fiscal resources are used.

Right now, NJCDD is in the process of developing its Five-Year State Plan for the period from October 1, 2022 – September 30, 2026. 

We are gathering input from the community to formulate our goals for the next five years. We want to hear from individuals with I/DD, families, caregivers, service providers and other stakeholders about what is working for people with developmental disabilities; what needs to change; and, how could it be changed.”

A Helpful App for Hearing/Speech Problems

GOOGLE LIVE TRANSCRIBE   Can be a very helpful APP, for your phone for aiding communications with those who are hearing impaired, deaf or have trouble processing speech. Basically, when opened it gives live closed captioning to the words you say, which come up on your phone screen and the other party can read what you have just said. They can respond with spoken words or type.  You can also switch between languages.

” Live Transcribe was made in collaboration with Gallaudet University, the premier Deaf and hard of hearing university in the US.”
