Kansas - Community Developmental Disability Organization


What is a CDDO?

CDDO stands for Community Developmental Disability Organization. This is the single point of entry for an individual or family to access services through the developmentally disablity system in Kansas. Currently, the state of Kansas has 28 CDDOs which are assigned according to geographic regions or counties. CDDOs are responsible for determining whether or not a person qualifies for services.

Information is gathered from several sources such as the child’s parents, doctor(s), and school. CDDO staff work with the person and/or family/guardian to complete the paperwork requirements. A BASIS is given once an individual has met the criteria for services through the CDDO. The BASIS is an assessment tool to determine the level of support an individual needs.

The CDDO is responsible in providing information so the family is aware of service options offered in their county. Once the child’s service needs have been identified and service providers have been selected, if applicable, then referrals are made to appropriate agencies.

Services available through the CDDO include (but not inclusive):

  • In-home supports—includes supportive home care and respite care; provider helps child in their home and community
  • Home modifications– funding to modify home environment to support child’s needs
  • Van lifts-funding to provide a van lift
  • Case management-service coordination
  • Licensed Day Services– employment/day program for adults
  • Licensed Residential Services-residential program for adults
  • Assistive technology funds (adults/individuals no longer in school)

Often funding is not immediately available. The child’s name is put on a waiting list. While the child is on the waiting list, case management can be provided if the child has Medicaid or chooses to private pay. The Home and Community Based Waiver (HCBS) is a MR/DD waiver that funds the services provided through the CDDO. These services are designed to keep a person with developmental disabilities in their home and community rather than in an institutional setting. CDDOs also provide quality assurance monitoring. This is in place to insure that services are being delivered according to Kansas regulations. A CDDO may also serve as a community service provider (CSP). CSPs are licensed agencies that provide day and residential services to adults.
