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!
