Developmental Disabilities Shared Vision

Alaskans share a vision of a flexible system in which each person directs their own supports, based on their strengths and abilities, toward a meaningful life in their home, their job and their community. Our vision includes supported families, professional staff and services available throughout the state now and into the future. DD Shared Vision Website



Alaskans with disabilities deserve respect, and to be equal to everyone else. That means living a full life, free of abuse and neglect. The Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education and Disability Law Center of Alaska worked together with self-advocates to share this important message. To report abuse or neglect of a vulnerable Alaskan, call Adult Protective Services at 1-800-478-9996 or file a report online.
