What is a CDDO?

     CDDO stands for Community Developmental Disabilities Organization. Due to the provisions of the Developmental Disabilities Reform Act, a CDDO has been designated for every area of the State to help coordinate DD services and supports.  Johnson County Developmental Supports is the designated CDDO for Johnson County.  The CDDO provides a single point of entry for services and works with service providers to ensure quality services for individuals with developmental disabilities.  Please call 913-826-2506 for additional information.

Mission Statement:

     Building resources to meet the needs and enhance the lives of persons with developmental disabilities and their families.

Role of the CDDO:

     The CDDO is the single point of entry for an individual or family to obtain services through the developmental disability system.  The CDDO is responsible for determining whether a person qualifies for services, working with the person and/or their family or guardian in choosing from an array of services options, and referring those persons to other agencies if additional supports are needed.  Contact the CDDO

     In addition, the CDDO monitors the quality of the services being provided by individual and community service providers.  A local Quality Assurance Committee was created that is made up of persons with developmental disabilities, their families, guardians, interested citizens, and providers.  The committee provides on-site monitoring of services to ensure individuals are provided with choices, receive necessary supports, are protected from harm, and exercise rights to the fullest extent possible.  CDDO staff also perform regular and ongoing quality assurance reviews with community and individual service providers, as well as investigate complaints by individuals and/or families.  Contact CDDO Quality Assurance
