More than 25 self-advocates (individuals with developmental and other disabilities), family members and staff connected to the Rose F. Kennedy University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities/ Children's Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (RFK UCEDD/CERC) recently participated in the Bronx Developmental Disabilities Council's annual legislative breakfast, held at Maestro's Restaurant. They joined more than 370 participants in a lively presentation and discussion focused on the changes and reductions in services—both programmatic and clinical—during a period of economic downturn, program retrenchment and redesign.
The breakfast, which was hosted by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., New York State Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz and New York State Senator Gustavo Rivera, provided an opportunity for consumers and staff to learn about public policy related to the needs of people with intellectual and other disabilities. It also offered a forum for providing information about the service needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities to legislators and governmental officials such as Laurie Kelly, commissioner of the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, Janice Chisholm, director of New York City's Bureau of Developmental Disabilities, and Melissa Mark Viverito, speaker of the NYC Council.
