DDA Quality Assurance and Improvement Initiative
Developmental Disabilities Administration Health Initiative (DDA HI)
The Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development, University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (GU-UCEDD) conducts a quality assurance and improvement initiative to assist the District of Columbia's Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) to:
- Meet its regulatory and legal requirements pursuant to Evans vs. Gray,
- Evaluate the effectiveness of policies and procedures related to the delivery of health care and related services, and
- Establish frameworks for the delivery of culturally and linguistically competent services to diverse constituencies.
The initiative focuses on health and related health issues that impact access to quality services and supports and ultimately quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities.
The goal of this initiative is to improve the health outcomes for adults with intellectual disabilities by addressing policies, practices, and resources for workforce development that affect change in the system of community-based services and supports.
