The state plan outlines Ohio's programs and services for people with developmental disabilities (DD). The definition and impact of DD are noted in section 1, and this is followed in sections 2 and 3 by descriptions of the State Planning Council on DD and the State Administering Agency. Section 4 examines the state context, noting the issues and concerns of DD in Ohio and the scope of services administered by the five responsible state agencies, namely, the Ohio Departments of Education, Health, Mental Health, and Public Welfare, and the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission. Priority service areas are outlined, and papers and reports are presented on prevention, comprehensive early intervention, respite services, residential services, and manpower training. Section 5 gives the state's goals, objectives, and funding projections for 1984-1986, with emphasis on prevention, early identification/intervention, alternative community living arrangements, manpower training, and special initiatives. Contained in two concluding sections are the state's list of assurances, guidelines for Ohio's operational definition of DD, a map of Ohio's DD planning areas, a review of federally assisted state programs, and the state's employee protection plan for displaced DD workers.
