The coordination of supports for adults with developmental disabilities (age 22 and older) in Carroll County is motivated by the principle of self-determination. This means that each person we serve is given the freedom to determine what their lives will look like and what they want to get out of life. This is done through a person-centered planning process and it is helping people become more independent and active in their community.
The Carroll County Board funds and/or provides supports for adults according to what each person needs and wants.
Supports for adults may include, but are not limited to the following:
Community/Supported Employment - Assists an individual in finding a job in the community and provides important supports, such as job coaching and counseling, to assist that person to be successful on the job and more independent.
Vocational Training - Development of skills needed to become employed and stay employed.
Adult Day Activities - Experiences that enhance a person's quality of life. These include social, leisure, recreational, and enrichment activities that can be provided in a variety of settings.
Transportation - The Board provides transportation to adults from home to work
