National Core Indicators
The Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities subcontracts with the Quality Management Team of the Division of MH/DD/SAS (Department of Health and Human Services) to conduct part of the National Core Indicators (NCI). The NCI is a national effort to collect information on the effectiveness of state developmental disabilities services in a format that can be compared across states and that can be used to benchmark progress within states. The subcontract involves a Consumer survey of up to 900 adults receiving services from Area Programs across N.C. The CIDD works collaboratively with the Division to edit survey forms, and recruits surveyors, trains them, distributes surveys in an appropriate manner, collects the survey data, checks the data for completeness and accuracy, and submits the data to the Division. One part of the Consumer survey is conducted in person with individuals with disabilities; a second section is completed either with the consumer or another respondent (family, advocate, staff). In addition, the CIDD helps prepare and distribute three complementary surveys (approximately 1800) to families who have children or adults with developmental disabilities to determine family satisfaction with state services.
