Your county board of developmental disabilities uses a few different assessment tools to get to know you, what support you might need, and what support you might be able to get from the people around you.
What to Expect
Types of Assessments |
Before completing an assessment, evaluators must complete department-approved training.
Log in for training available in DODD MyLearning or to access online assessment applications.
Developmental Disabilities Level of Care
Ohio Eligibility Determination Instrument
The Ohio Eligibility Determination Instrument records information about a person's abilities to determine if they are eligible for county board of developmental disabilities programs or services.
The OEDI captures information about people 16 years old and older. The Children's OEDI, or COEDI, records information for children 6 to 15 years old. DODD authorizes county board staff to administer the OEDI and COEDI.
Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review
The Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review assessment is completed before a person moves into a nursing home. The questions evaluate if other options should be explored before the person leaves their current living situation.
Questions about medical history and the kind of help needed with daily activities are part of this assessment. A hospital or nursing facility initiates the assessment, then county board staff complete the assessment after a face-to-face visit with the person.
