For young adults with disabilities, graduation means more than a high school diploma. The exhaustion of your child’s educational entitlement marks the transition from services under the Department of Children & Families (DCF) to the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD).

What We Can Do

  • Guide you through the application process to secure services through DDD
  • Ensure Medicaid eligibility and maintenance through our Representative Payeeship program
  • Interpret the NJ-Comprehensive Assessment Tool (NJ-CAT) and guide you through completion
  • Provide or connect you with support coordination services
  • Connect you with our Family Connections and Mentorship programs
