BSP Oversight Procedure

Monday, August 1, 2011

This purpose of this procedure is to establish the standards and guidelines to be used in providing behavior support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the District of Columbia. Behavior support is an appropriate service for a person who displays a pattern or patterns of behavior which are likely to serious limit his or her ability to engage in activities or relationships that are meaningful to the person; or which threaten the physical safety of the person or those around them. These procedures will govern how Department on Disability Services (DDS), Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) providers develop, implement, and monitor behavior support plans for the people they support.
