QIIDD (Quality Improvement in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) is a project by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to highlight information about the quality of services and supports for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in Massachusetts.

Key topic areas:

QIIDD offers information for:

  • Self-Advocates: This is a way to know if people who receive services are supported in important areas of their lives like healthy living, decision making, and employment. Data is presented on this website to help self-advocates understand how well people are supported  If it’s not counted, it doesn’t count!
  • Provider Agencies: Averages of the data that you report on and highlights of trends in the data.
  • Other Interested People (stakeholders): Information about quality in community based services throughout Massachusetts
