(Developmental Disability Resource Center)
Formerly known as the STAR Program
The DDRC program provides assistance to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, to access resources in their communities and Medicaid waivers through the State of Alaska Developmental Disabilities Programs. The DDRC program can help families navigate the complex options and requirements to find the services that are right for each individual person. DDRC is funded through a grant from The State of Alaska Senior and Disability Services (SDS) so there is no cost for service to the consumers and families we serve.
The Alaska Department of Health & Social Services has coordinated a Developmental Disabilities Shared Vision for the State, available below.

Results in substantial functional limitations in three or more of the following areas of major life activity:
