VOICE was established on the belief that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities must be active in advocating for their own interests. Our members promote greater support and understanding for adults and children who have an intellectual and developmental disability by recommending policy change on issues ranging from education to civil rights. Our members have worked closely with policymakers on a variety of issues including:
Medicaid managed care
Through public policy, VOICE strives to ensure that individuals and their families can contribute to the design of and have access to disability-competent services and supports, as well as other assistance and opportunities, which promote inclusive communities.
