We affect policy and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and their supports through education, advocacy and partnerships.
Welcome to the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council where members and staff play a pivotal role in making things happen through advocacy, education and innovation.
Since our inception we have leveraged over one hundred million dollars to make global changes in systems and services that impact children and adults who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities such as autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and others as defined within Florida statute 393. Learn about what we do, how we do it, and join our efforts.
What is the iBudget Waiver?
The iBudget Waiver is a health insurance program that serves nearly 35,000 individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is funded by federal and state dollars through Medicaid – the only public health insurance program available to people with disabilities.
