Allan Bergman on the DD Act
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Developmental Disabilities Act, the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities invited Allan Bergman to share his views on the evolution and future of the federal law. Bergman is a nationally known consultant on developmental disabilities issues and a former administrator of leading nonprofit organizations. He has been a keynote speaker in all 50 states, Canada, Australia and Israel.
This perspective on the historical evolution of the elements that created today’s policy and regulatory framework on developmental disabilities can be viewed in its entirety, or by individual chapters related to key questions.
The views expressed belong to the speaker and are not necessarily those of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities or the Minnesota Department of Administration. (Total time: 1:31:04)
