The Advisory Consortium on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

"Where Diversity is Appreciated, Consensus is Valued and All Opinions Matter."

Charge for TACIDD

  1. TACIDD serves in an advisory capacity to the DBHDS through the Office of Developmental Services on issues regarding policy, services and supports for persons with developmental disabilities in Virginia.
  2. TACIDD is made up of any interested party in Virginia who wishes to participate in advising the DBHDS in the development of policy and services with regard to persons with DD. TACIDD does not have "members." All recognized organizations in Virginia who have as a primary focus the development or improvement of services and supports for persons with DD are invited and encouraged to have at least one representative at each meeting. TACIDD strives to have regional representation from across the Commonwealth.
  3. TACIDD produces outcomes in the form of written "Advisories" to the Department concerning any issue it has been assigned by the Department or has elected to develop.
  4. TACIDD uses the form of smaller work groups to research and develop the Advisories on specific issues for presentation to the larger group.
  5. TACIDD tracks items related to developmental disabilities that are being developed by other agencies through invitation for presentations and through periodic reports.
  6. TACIDD focuses on its role as an advisor to the Department, is oriented to the development of Advisories on issues related to best practice models and improvements to the current system in Virginia and annually evaluates its effectiveness through an assessment of the number of Advisories that result in legislative or policy affirmation as a percentage of the full body of work developed.
