The mission of the Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities is to promote the capacity of people with developmental disabilities and their families to determine, access, and direct the services and/or support they need to live the lives they choose, and to build the communities ability to support their choices.The Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities is a 23-member volunteer board, created by federal and state law, whose purpose is to advocate for Idahoans with developmental disabilities to assure they have access to needed community supports, individualized services, and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity, and inclusion in Idaho communities. The Council advocates with and on behalf of Idahoans with developmental disabilities by listening to their concerns and working to help them improve their lives by building service systems and natural supports that enable them to live lives of independence, responsibility, meaning, and contribution.
