Network of Community Providers
The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has funding, certification and monitoring responsibilities for 19 nonprofit community agencies serving people with developmental disabilities. These agencies, which are certified by DDD, are commonly referred to as Community Support Providers (CSPs). CSPs provide services to over 2,000 people in a variety of settings. Providers remain certified by undergoing review activities conducted by DDD and include Council on Quality and Leadership or Life Quality Reviews and Administrative Rules of South Dakota reviews.
Community Support Providers may offer residential and vocational services, as well as service coordination and nursing care. CSPs provide residential options for people, such as group homes and supervised apartments. Community-living training and residential expanded follow-along are also provided for those who are living on their own or are working toward that goal. Vocational opportunities may include working in the agency workshop, job coaching and pre-vocational training for participants looking for community jobs, and vocational expanded follow-along for those working in the community.
Network of program specialists
Each CSP is assigned a Program Specialist (PS) to be the liaison between the CSP and the DDD. The PS will address any needs such as significant changes within the CSP, respond and review Critical Incident Reports (CIRs), provide Technical Assistance (TA), and much more. You can find the assigned PS included in the List of CSPs below. To contact any PS, you can call the DDD at 605-773-3438.
