ANNOUNCEMENTS:

1) National Core Indicator Survey (NCI) – The National Core Indicator (or NCI) survey helps the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) know how you feel about your supports. It helps DDS to know if people are getting the services they need. All of the answers (or data) are put into a report. The report helps DDS learn about what is working well and what could be better. The survey is anonymous and answering the questions will not change your services. People from the SCDD regional office may contact you to set up an appointment to answer the survey. They will have an identification card so you know it is safe to talk with them. We encourage you to participate in the survey but you can choose not to participate.

2) The SCDD is recruiting qualified interviewers statewide for the NCI Surveys. For more information, about the survey you can go to DDS Quality Assessment Project.
