The Commission is charged with ensuring the Commonwealth's commitment to quality services for all citizens with intellectual disability.

The Commission is able to meet its mandate:

  • By organizing Commission activities to reflect specific priorities, including healthcare, quality enhancement, children/youth and families, workforce development and innovations in service delivery.
  • By identifying and analyzing information on a variety of aspects of the service system in Massachusetts through site visits; meeting with individuals with intellectual disability, their families, advocates, service providers and DDS staff.
  • By preparing reports that address specific topics relevant to persons with intellectual disability and their families.
  • By holding public hearings or other educational forums on selected issues.
  • By investigating complaints.
