Community Input Meeting: Person-Centered Practice Goals

Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2023

1 – 2:30 P.M. Central Time SESSION

The North Dakota Department of Health and Human Service Developmental Disabilities (DD) program wants to hear from people receiving services, family members, guardians, community advocates and providers about the person-centered practice’s goal. Participants can choose to attend either the afternoon or evening session. The same information will be shared at both sessions.

The DD Team has been working with partners and experts to develop material on the “dignity of risk” for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. “Dignity of risk” is the right to make informed choices and take reasonable risks. Information will be shared on the drafted material, and the DD team will be gathering feedback from attendees for consideration in the final product.
