Developmental Disabilities Waiting List Registration and Review

Under Alaska statute, the Department of Health and Social Services is required to maintain a registry of individuals who experience a developmental disability and are in need of services. Senior and Disabilities Services (SDS) is working to address this Developmental Disabilities registry by updating its policies and procedures around the selection of individuals in need of developmental disabilities services. Your feedback is important to us as we continue to work to provide developmental disabilities services to Alaskans who need them.

This registry and review form is used to gather both annual survey data that we need, and to ensure that SDS has the most current information about you and your needs. This form asks you for information about you, including how to contact you, your life concerns, and your service needs. The information you provide will be used to help select individuals for developmental disabilities services when funding becomes available. This information will also be compiled to be used in a report for the Department of Health and Social Services and the Alaska Legislature about those in need of developmental disabilities services in Alaska.

You may obtain help in completing this form from a STAR representative near you. Their assistance is free of charge. SDS also welcomes your comments about this form. You may also contact a Health Program Manager at a Senior and Disabilities Services office near you at any time to discuss the form or our programs in more detail, or to answer any questions:
