The Skagit County Developmental Disabilities Program exists to foster inclusive communities that support people with developmental disabilities to fully participate in and contribute to all aspects of community life.
The Developmental Disabilities Program manages a variety of programs related to providing services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The Developmental Disabilities Program also provides support for individuals and families and hosts community events and trainings to improve community awareness of developmental disabilities and inclusion.
Skagit County receives State and Federal funding to contract with local community agencies to provide supported employment services for adults and early intervention services for children from birth to three years of age. The Skagit County Developmental Disabilities Program also facilitates the Developmental Disabilities Advisory Board which is composed of community members who have been appointed by the Skagit County Board of County Commissioners.
