What is a CDDO?

A Community Developmental Disability Organization is the single point of application, eligibility determination, and referral for individuals and families to obtain services through the developmental disability system in the State of Kansas. CDDOs determine whether a person qualifies for services and work with the person and/or their family or guardian in choosing from an array of service options, and refer those persons to other community resources if additional supports are needed. 
 

Kansas currently has 27 CDDOs, each of which are assigned a particular county or group of counties in which they are the primary provider of  gatekeeping services. Cottonwood CDDO's service area includes Douglas and Jefferson Counties.
