Developmental Services Quality Council

The Developmental Services Quality Council was established to provide leadership for consistent, systemic review and improvement of the quality of the developmental disability and acquired brain disorder services provided within New Hampshire's developmental services system.

Senate Bill 138, which was passed during the 2007 legislative session, established a committee to review and make recommendations regarding the quality assurance and improvement elements and activities within New Hampshire’s community-based developmental services system.

The Committee’s broad-based membership produced the Senate Bill 138 Report report in November 2008 to assist the Bureau of Developmental Services (BDS), area agencies and their subcontract agencies to address a variety of issues related to quality.

Pursuant to NH RSA 91-A, all Council meetings and the meetings of any subcommittee constituted by the Council are open to the public. Said meetings will be held in accessible facilities. Interpreters and other necessary services are provided at Council or Council committees / subcommittee meetings for members or participants so long as said services are requested within a reasonable time in advance of the meeting. 

If accommodations are needed for communication access such as interpreters, CART (captioning), assistive listening devices, or other auxiliary aids and/or services, please contact the Council Administrator, Carrie Duran at at least five (5) business days before the meeting.  At least 5 business days advance notice is requested in order to assure availability; requests made fewer than 5 days prior to the event will attempt to be accommodated but cannot be guaranteed.
