Adults interested in receiving support and services from the Medina County Board of DD, must first be deemed eligible. The eligibility process and determination is completed through our Intake Office. The Intake Office staff use the criteria set by state through the Ohio Eligibility Determination Instrument (OEDI) when make these decisions. For more information on the intake and eligibility process, please click here.
Assessments and Enrollment
After eligibility is determined, our skilled staff works with the individual and their family to assess their needs and the resources available. The assessment process matches interests and needs with program availability. The outcome of the assessment period is an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) that specifies what services will be delivered and how an individual's needs will be met through enrollment.
Adult Services Staff
All staff members must meet and complete Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (Ohio DODD) mandated training for certification, but more importantly, they must possess a strong desire to help each individual reach their fullest potential. All positions require a minimum of a high school diploma or equivalent. Professional positions have varying educational requirements. All are subject to state and federal background checks and Ohio DODD Abuser Registry screenings.
Adult programs are offered at all of our facilities and operate Monday through Friday, 236 days per year.
