DRW weighs in on developmental disability system audit results
An audit, this summer, of the Developmental Disabilities Administration, compared state services against those offered nationally to gauge effectiveness of services and look for improvements. The report highlighted, among other concerns, limited availability of services and lack of provider oversight. Report recommendations included expansion of community crisis stabilization, emergency respite and waitlist reduction.
DRW shared many of the same concerns as the Washington State Auditor and stressed the pressing need to protect adults receiving DDA services from abuse and neglect.
