This study, “Choice and Community: Seeking the Voice of Adults with Developmental Disabilities” was conducted by the Center on Disabilities and Human Development at the University of Idaho and the Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities in collaboration with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare from August 2015 - April 2016. The purpose of the study was to identify the perceptions of adults with developmental disabilities who were receiving Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) (Medicaid Program: State Plan Home and Community-Based Services, 2014) or their guardians regarding the extent to which individuals were integrated into the community, had choices, individual rights, and autonomy within a living setting.
