Jaskulski (Tecla) and Associates.
This executive summary describes the movement of people with developmental disabilities toward the goals of independence, productivity, and integration, as evidenced by reports prepared by the State Developmental Disabilities Planning Councils. The summary outlines findings from state reports in relation to major life areas: learning; working; housing; health; civil rights; and related supports to individuals, families, and communities. The executive summary presents goals for people with developmental disabilities, recent accomplishments at the state and local level, quotes from consumers and family members, and recommendations directed primarily at the federal level. State surveys were conducted on the status of individuals with developmental disabilities and their satisfaction with services being received, and data are presented in the areas of independence, productivity, and integration and the major life areas. Critical issues and barriers are discussed, such as the availability of particular supports, services, or programs; their accessibility; their lack of focus on independence, productivity, and integration; the quality of services; and consumer control. Groups reported as unserved or underserved are listed. (JDD)
