We are participants, families and advocates for Self-Directed Services (SDS) in Maryland.   SDS is designed to be “flexible, person centered and family oriented” (DDA transformation, July 2015).   We have created successful, cost effective individualized programs in compliance with  Federal Guidelines.   We continue to work with DDA to maintain person-centerness and family involvement.  Please view SDAN’s 8 points here.  We ask  your support in requesting that Maryland’s Developmental Disabilities Administration and lawmakers uphold the right to self-determination for people with disabilities.  We welcome all to our Network and respectfully ask that DDA and other state officials  Hear our Voice!
