Developmental Homes for Adults and Children

An Adult Developmental Home provides support to an adult with developmental disabilities who cannot live with his or her own family. These adults are placed by the Arizona Department of Economic Security’s Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) along with strong family involvement to ensure that the adult is receiving the specialized care he or she needs. Adults placed by DDD are usually long term because there is typically a need for a permanent home. The Adult Developmental Home program specifically places adults, ages 18 and older that have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. These developmental disabilities include: Intellectual Disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Epilepsy. An Adult Developmental Home may provide support for up to three adults that have a developmental disability.

A Child Developmental Home provides parenting to a child with developmental disabilities who cannot live with his or her own family. These children are placed by the Arizona Department of Economic Security’s Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Children placed by DDD can be temporary or long term. The case plan for many of these children is reunification with their biological family or adoption. The Child Developmental Home program specifically places children, ages 0 to 18 years of age that have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. These developmental disabilities include: Intellectual Disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Epilepsy. A Child Developmental Home may provide support for up to three children that have a developmental disability.
