​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) gathered information and resources to help inform and support people in services, family members, direct support professionals, and providers.  In addition, the DDA has developed guidance to assist the delivery of community-based services in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. The DDA is working with the various Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Administrations, the Maryland Department of Disabilities (MDOD), and Maryland and National advocacy organizations to support our Community Providers during this challenging time. We are committed to providing the information, tools, and resources you need to succeed as the first line of defense for individuals with developmental disabilities in Maryland.
