Individual and Family Information

This page can help you navigate the sometimes complex system of services for individuals with developmental disabilities. We are ready to help you, so if you need assistance feel free to contact us at BHDDH.AskDD@bhddh.ri.gov.

How to get started What to expect

Once you apply and are determined eligible for services, you will be contacted by staff at the division and will then need to complete an assessment called the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) to better understand your service needs. In addition, you will be assigned a social case worker who will contact you to discuss the services available to you.
