Developmental Disabilities Program / Resource Coordination

The Developmental Disabilities Program/Resource Coordination is the local link to the Developmental Disabilities Administration (​DDA).  This program is designed to assist individuals with disabilities by processing eligibility for DDA, to identify appropriate services and resources, to obtain needed services, and to enable them to gain as much independence as possible in their lives.


Who Should Apply for DDA Services?

Anyone with severe, chronic disability, other than the sole diagnosis of Mental Illness and who needs/or will need residential, day, or support services may apply.  Interpreter services are available.


Eligibility for Services:

Eligibility depends upon your type of disability, its effects on your ability to live independently, and your age when you became disabled.  DDA services are not an entitlement.


How to Apply?

To apply for services, any Talbot County resident may make a referral by calling 410-819-5600 or complete a Referral Form which can be mailed or faxed.
