Free Webinar: The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Please join the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) and the I&R Support Center for a webinar on Status and Trends in Public Financing of Supports and Services for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.  

Financial and programmatic spending on long-term supports and services are compelling indicators of the strength of a nation’s investment in the inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in their communities. The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Project analyzes nearly 40 years’ worth of public financial investments in IDD services and supports, offering a comparative nationwide longitudinal look at financial and programmatic trends in institutional and community-based services for people with IDD in the US. This data reveals longitudinal impacts of federal and state fiscal policies on innovations in the support and services system in the states and nation. In this webinar, preliminary results from Fiscal Years 2016-2017 will be presented and emerging financial and programmatic trends in the current political climate will be discussed. Join us to learn about findings and trends that impact individuals and families in your state and community. 

Speaker: Amie Lulinski, PhD, FAAIDD, Project Manager, State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities, University of Colorado
