Copies are available through the Project Headquarters at the University of Colorado or through AAIDD. This is the latest edition of the popular State of the States in Developmental Disabilities study-a thorough and the only one of its kind investigation on public spending, revenues, and programmatic trends of intellectual and developmental programs and services within the United States since 1977. Directed by leading researcher, Dr. David Braddock, the study serves as a goldmine of information on trends and analyses of developmental disability services-from comparative spending on the HCBS Waiver, ICF/MR and related Medicaid programs, to the number of participants in the supported living and personal assistance programs in each state. Rich in detail, this is a must-have reference for anyone working in the field of developmental disabilities.
