Developmental Disabilities Network

The Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act) authorizes the development of three state programs to ensure that individuals with disabilities and their families can access and participate in all facets of community life. Together these programs form the Developmental Disability Network (DD Network) in Connecticut.
