Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD)

PDD funds programs and services to help adult Albertans with developmental disabilities to be a part of their communities and live as independently as they can.

The program funds four kinds of staffing supports based on an individualized service plan:

  • Community Living Supports help individuals in their home (for example: meal planning and housekeeping)
  • Employment Supports train, educate and support individuals to get and keep jobs
  • Community Access Supports help individuals participate in their community (for example: volunteering, going to clubs, sports and other activities)
  • Specialized Community Supports are generally short-term supports to help with special circumstances (for example: extra help when a person is having trouble)
