Three Buckets of Support

DDCO has organized resources using the "three buckets of support" from the Supporting Families of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities National Community of Practice.  We realize that families need more than goods and services. Sometimes families need information about a disability diagnosis or about a particular therapy or program. Sometimes, they need opportunities to connect with others who have been in their shoes. 

Buckets are described below.  Choose the bucket to view those resources.
