It is the mission of the Carroll County Board of Developmental Disabilities program to provide quality services to those living with developmental disabilities, supporting them, and their families to unlock their potential.
It is the vision of Carroll County Board of Developmental Disabilities to provide an integrated service system that promotes growth and personal satisfaction for both individuals and families.
The Carroll County Board of Developmental Disabilities recognizes that every person is granted certain freedoms and rights. The Board also recognizes that these inherent freedoms and rights are available to every person. They afford each consumer of our services the opportunity to become as independent and as capable of controlling their own lives as possible. It is to this end that the Board's services are aimed.
The uniqueness of each individual is reflected in the development of each consumer's habilitation and education plan within the CCBDD Programs. The concepts of "normalization" and "least restrictive environment" are implemented as integral parts of each program developed for consumers of our services.
The Carroll County Board of Developmental Disabilities also believes that one of the highest goals of normalization within its services is the enhancement of positive social roles of the individual. These normalization goals are achieved with the development of individualized programs, which reduce or prevent differences, which may lessen the value of the person in the eyes of the observer. The program also works with the community to change perceptions and values toward our clients so that mental retardation and developmental disabilities characteristics are no longer seen as devalued.
All services offered by the CCBDD are available without prejudice to age, race, national origin, sex, or physical or mental handicap. Delivery of programming and service is provided upon the results of unbiased comprehensive evaluation and individual needs assessment of all consumers.
