Community conversations with people with developmental disabilities in California
Authors: Department of Developmental Services Consumer Advisory Committee
This short book in PDF format was developed from conversations with people with disabilities in California. It lists choices they have and areas in which they would like more choices. It was produced by the Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) of the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS).
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) was started in 1992 by the director of the DDS to give consumers a voice at DDS. The CAC gives DDS information about important issues that effect consumers in California and provides consumers information about things that DDS is doing. The CAC makes the decision about what they do from information members get from the community about DDS issues and community priorities.
In the fall of 2002,The Consumer Advisory Committee took their Vision Statement, My Life My Way to People First groups, Self-Advocacy groups and local CAC meetings in communities throughout the state, and two developmental centers. Committee members talked with about 400 people about what choices they make in their life today and what choices they would like to make.
