PASRR Coordination

(Pre-Admission Screen and Resident Review)

The NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities has five regional offices (DDROs) throughout the state.  Each district office (local branch) of a  DDRO has an assigned PASRR Coordinator, and that person is the first point of contact for a Level II assessment request or for PASRR-related issues.

The Statewide PASRR Coordinator is located in OPWDD’s Central Office in Albany.
