What is a Provider?
Private providers are organizations contracted by county boards of developmental disabilities that provide services for people with disabilities. Services can include housing, personal care, supported employment, day programs, transportation, respite and more. SSAs and other agency staff can help you through the process of finding and working with a provider. However, staff cannot choose a provider for an individual served.
Information on how to interview a provider can be found on the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities website.
