Vermont Developmental Disabilities Services Division Health and Wellness Guidelines


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

“The Developmental Disabilities Services Division is responsible to ensure the health and safety of people who receive Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)-funded developmental services.

One of the key purposes of the Health and Wellness Guidelines is to provide the tools necessary to advocate for the best possible medical care for people with developmental disabilities. The Guidelines will not address all possible health conditions and individual circumstances vary. Therefore, the role of the individual and those that support him/her to advocate for good health care is important. It is also important that those who help the individual be knowledgeable about health issues and receive the necessary training to gain this knowledge.”
