The Developmental Disabilities Council of Oklahoma is a place for families and individuals to connect to information when learning about a disability.

The Governor's Office accepts applications for Oklahoma citizens 18 years and older to serve on the Developmental Disabilities Council of Oklahoma. If you are interested in advocating for Oklahomans with developmental disabilities, complete the Governor's "Get Involved" application here. All decisions on Council membership are made by the governor, and an application does not guarantee appointment.
