Governor signs two bills to help the developmentally disabled

Governor John Kasich recently signed two bills for the developmentally disabled, which removes what’s considered by some as offensive language and now uses the wording of a “person with an intellectual disability.” One of the bills moves the oversight of the Early Intervention (EI) programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities under the sole supervision of the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. That allows for those just entering the system to be seamlessly cared for until adulthood.
