The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has shared ODPANN 24-022 and its accompanying Family Surveys attachment. The announcement notes that the National Core Indicators® (NCI®) surveys provide states with valid and reliable tools to help improve system performance and better serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (age 18 and older) and their families. Since 1997, Pennsylvania has participated annually in the NCI® Project.
Both surveys are scheduled to be mailed and should be received within the next two weeks. Beginning this year, families and guardians may choose one of two ways to complete the survey they receive. They may either fill out the hard copy and return it to ODP via the self-addressed stamped envelope provided, or they may enter their responses directly into a secure online database using the link and instructions contained in the cover letter accompanying the survey.
Please view the announcement and attachment for information and details.
