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.
If you are unable to contact the local PASRR Coordinator, please contact the Statewide PASRR Coordinator: Deborah.J.Waymer@opwdd.ny.gov
