The Bureau of Developmental Disability Services is committed to supporting our provider network in working toward a true person-centered system which includes ensuring that those who support individuals honor individual rights and understand the role of guardians.

We were pleased to offer this in partnership with Indiana Disability Rights. We are appreciative to Melissa Keyes, executive director of Indiana Disability Rights, for sharing her expertise.
Participants learned about:
A recording of the training and the PowerPoint are now available. A question-and-answer document will be posted soon.
As a reminder, BDDS has a playlist of videos that might be of interest to providers, individuals, families and other stakeholders.
