Tune in today at noon on Oregon Public Broadcasting- OPB‘s Think Out Loud. Listen in as brokerage association Executive Director Kathryn Weit, ODDS Director Lilia Teninty and provider organization director Shanya Luther discuss changes to Oregon’s intellectual and developmental disability services.
From OPB: Oregon’s system for delivering home and community-based services to seniors and people with disabilities is in the process of being completely overhauled. The state has said that the new system will increase the amount of funding provided by Medicaid for disability-related services and give individuals more choices in how and where services are provided. Parts of the system are already in place, and parts are still in the process of being rolled out.
- Lilia Teninty: Director of the State of Oregon’s Developmental Disabilities Services
- Kathryn Weit: Executive Director of the Oregon Support Services Association
- Shanya Luther: Founder of Among Friends, a social sexual support services agency
