forum 

The King County Developmental Disabilities Legislative Forum is an opportunity to educate elected officials on issues that are important to the intellectually and/or developmentally delayed or disabled (I/DD) community. This is done through sharing King County's I/DD legislative priorities, and also by having our community members share their personal stories as they relate to the priorities.

Take a Deeper Dive into Each Issue

  1. Promote equitable access and connections to culturally relevant services and resources in the community for individuals with disabilities or delays of all ages and their families.
3. Improve access to Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) services by eliminating families’ out-of-pocket costs, including co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles, while protecting agencies' ability to bill private insurance for ESIT services.

4. Invest in employment to support economic recovery and build on state investments in special education.

  • Increase the rate for Employment and Day Program services to support provider sustainability and growth and help get people with I/DD back to work.
  • Implement the recommendations identified in the State Transition Collaborative’s January 2021 report to improve transition outcomes for students with I/DD who are leaving high school. This includes expanding School-to-Work statewide, establishing data sharing with state agencies, and supporting students and families to learn about transition services and resources.
