Imprtant Notice: DDD Assessment/Re-Assessment Through the NJ CAT
Research is being conducted on the Quality of Life Experience of individuals with developmental disabilities in New Jersey. The results of this survey will be used so that self-advocates, advocates, families and guardians have the facts they need to ensure the creation of high quality supports and services in our state, and to provide a baseline of our current experiences prior to the rollout of our state’s Supports Program and other new initiatives.
The survey will take a few minutes of your time and responses are anonymous. You can complete it all at once or start the survey and return to finish it later. Individuals with developmental disabilities can respond themselves or if they are unable to, a parent or guardian can fill out the survey on their behalf. If you have questions or need an advocate to help you with a particular situation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
New ABLE Account Survey
The ABLE National Resource Center has developed a survey to better understand how many individuals might be eligible for ABLE accounts and how a potential beneficiary may use an ABLE account to save for disability related expenses. The results will be analyzed by the ABLE National Resource Center and distributed to its members and other relevant stakeholders. The Arc encourages advocates to distribute the survey widely through social media, email, and newsletters. It is hoped that all responses will be submitted by August 3rd, though distribution is still encouraged through the end of August.
