When disabled children reach adulthood, they may require additional services that are no longer available from their local school districts. Such adult disabled individuals may qualify for day programming and families may also receive support services in the home. Eventually, applications can be made to New Jersey State Agencies, such as the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), to have adults with disabilities placed residentially in group homes or have residential programming arranged through family members.
Disputes with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF)
Many disabled children and their families require services that are just not available from their local school districts. They also may require services, such as a residential placement for reasons that are not related to special education programming. Applications can be made to different New Jersey State agencies for assistance, such as the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
