Family Advisory Council (FAC) meetings take place quarterly and are open to everyone. The Family Advisory Council provides a forum for DODD to hear directly from family members about the issues that impact their lives, and provides the opportunity to learn more about the department's current initiatives from executive staff.

Be sure to subscribe to Family Connection for the latest family-centered news and FAC updates.

#FamilyTalk is an informal discussion on family topics by people who know their stuff. These live chats are hosted on the DODD Facebook page and offer the opportunity to watch, interact, and ask questions live.

Ohio was awarded the opportunity to
participate in the National  Community of Practice (CoP) for Supporting Families and will join other states in a multi-year effort to develop systems of support for families throughout the lifespan of their family member with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). This CoP is unique in Ohio because it focuses on all families with a member with a disability, not just those who receive formal supports. Learn more about Ohio's CoP here.
