March is DD Awareness Month

The Cuyahoga County Board of DD encourages everyone to help create a more inclusive community. We all have a role in making sure people with disabilities are welcomed, respected and given equal opportunity to enjoy all the community has to offer.

Join us on Facebook and use our custom "Inclusion begins with you" frame to change your current profile picture and highlight your commitment to a more inclusive Greater Cleveland. (Search keywords: CCBDD, Cuyahoga BDD, developmental disabilities, or inclusion.)

There is an exciting new resource for rating providers of services for people with developmental disabilities- ProviderGuidePlus. This easy-to-use, online system provides an opportunity for you to rate your provider and learn how others have rated their providers. ProviderGuidePlus is intended to help people select a provider and help improve services overall.
