The New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities is pleased to present this report on the work and recommendations of the Transformation Panel, a diverse group of stakeholders called together to help evolve OPWDD’s system of support for people with developmental disabilities.  The vision, themes, and specifics of this report lay out the path forward for the OPWDD system, which will build on the system’s many successes, including the continuation of a robust array of existing services which currently support 130,000 individuals and their families. The aim of the Transformation Panel’s recommendations is to provide additional service options which go further to offer people with developmental disabilities support that is tailored to their individual needs and fosters their integration into their communities of choice.
