One of the cornerstones to enhancing the quality of life for individuals and families with intellectual disability is the statewide network of Citizen Advisory Boards (CAB). The CABs consist of self-advocates, family members, guardians, professionals, and other citizens who advise area/facility/regional directors on community needs and the quality of programs. CAB members contribute to positive change through legislative advocacy, community education, other activities to acknowledge the work and partnership of direct care workers and families. CAB members are appointed by the DDS Commissioner to serve on the board.
