LOCATION OF POSITION

MDH Developmental Disabilities Administration, Baltimore MD 21201

POSITION DUTIES

This position manages and directs the career and employment activities statewide for individuals with developmental disabilities. This includes the development, implementation, coordination and monitoring of transitioning services for students exiting the educational system and for individuals requiring Supported Employment Services. This position will provide policy direction to employment coordinators in the 4 DDA regional offices and will work with external stakeholders in the development of policy and initiatives that facilitate the employment of people with developmental disabilities. This position will focus on both transformation of the system as well as building increased capacity. The Developmental Disabilities Administration provides funding for a variety of services to approximately 25,000 people through a network of over 200 community based service providers. Of the 25,000, approximately 600 student’s transition into DDA funded services each year and another 5,000 people receive funding for employment services across the state. This number is expected to increase as the Employment First initiative is implemented and as Maryland fully implements the requirement of the CMS Community Settings Rule. The cost of the transitioning youth and employment services is approximately $235 million.
