In 2010, The State Council on Developmental Disabilities, in cooperation with The Department of Developmental Services and Human Services Research Institute (HSRI), joined 26 other states in conducting quality assessment interviews using the nationally recognized National Core Indicators (NCI) assessment tool.
The core indicators are standard measures used across states to assess the outcomes of services provided to individuals and families. Indicators address key areas of concern including employment, rights, service planning, community inclusion, choice, and health and safety.
The Council collects data across the state of California through face-to-face interviews with adult consumers, as well as through surveys mailed to families of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
The responses to these surveys help California identify essential changes necessary to improve the quality of the service delivery system at a statewide and local level.
