Eight separate sessions were held, with input collected from people with developmental disabilities, their family members, and service providers. Guidehouse has summarized the input they collected through these sessions into a report: Townhall Discussion Feedback Summary: People with Developmental Disabilities, Families, and Natural Supports

Guidehouse will draw upon the town hall discussions and the survey results in preparing its final report, which will be released next spring. That report will help OPWDD understand what benefits managed care might have to offer the OPWDD service system.
