Opportunity for Public Input: Needs of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities or Autism

Posted on August 20, 2019

Maine Developmental Services Oversight and Advisory Board (MDSOAB) and The Maine Office of Aging and Disability Services will hold public listening forums to receive information from persons with intellectual disabilities or autism, their families, self-advocates, advocates, providers of services, and the public to generate greater understanding of the strengths and needs of Maine's system of support.
