A Comprehensive Review and Analysis (CRA), a major portion of the State Plan, is a description of the state's services, supports, and other assistance available to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Four areas must be addressed in the State Plan – Health/Health Care, Employment, Informal and Formal Services and Supports, and Interagency Initiatives.
Six areas can be included in the State Plan but are not required – Quality Assurance, Education/Early Intervention, Housing, Transportation, Child Care, and Recreation.
A draft CRA is available for your review: 2016-State Plan-CRA-Draft.pdf
Two surveys were recently conducted:
A survey of Individuals with Developmental Disabilities and Families identifies current levels of satisfaction with Independence, Productivity, Self Determination, Integration and Inclusion (outcomes found in the Developmental Disabilities Act) and important issues to be addressed over the next five years;
A survey of Providers identifies the quality of services in nine specific areas of emphasis and where service delivery systems can be improved.
