The Family Support Coalition of NJ and the Regional Family Support Planning Councils would like to bring to your attention the survey we developed to collect data from families caring for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) of all ages about support services and the systems that serve them. The data will be used to better understand the needs of families of individuals with I/DD (I/DD) and to assist us in our advocacy efforts to educate DCF and DDD about what services are most important to families and identify gaps in the systems.
The survey will be available from April 1 to May 15 2015. Participation is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. Based on the age of the family member and the system they are being served under they will be directed to one of 2 surveys. On the introduction page families will click on the appropriate category which will automatically take the participant to the correct survey. If there is more than one individual with I/DD in the family they will be asked to complete a survey for each family member.
