Ohio was awarded the opportunity to participate in the National  Community of Practice (CoP) for Supporting Families and will join other states in a multi-year effort to develop systems of support for families throughout the lifespan of their family member with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). This CoP is unique in Ohio because it focuses on all families with a member with a disability, not just those who receive formal supports. Sign up to receive Ohio CoP news in your inbox!

Follow Along with Ohio’s CoP Work

The Ohio Community of Practice for Supporting Families is a place where people facilitating and engaging in CtLC work  connect with other people engaged with CtLC  who support Ohioans with disabilities throughout the state.
