I understand that the services for special needs children are limited in Colorado, with the possible exception of Parent to Parent and its associates. Is there anything for special needs children who are now "adults?" My daughter will be 21 in Feb 2010, and is still in need of assistance. she has been attending life skills classes locally during the school year, but it would be wonderfull if there were any programs that would get her out of the house overnight, or for a period of days, just as a break for her and for her mother and step father. She has no particular medical needs, but does need some supervision and guidance on a daily basis.

The phone numbers for D.D.D. are: Main Phone: (303) 866-7450 FAX: (303) 866-7470
thank you for this link. We were considering a move to Colorado, but I won't do that until I find out more on services, and this post was very helpful.

It's all about me!

Not We.

Look for a more compassionate State.
considering 4 of the last 5 governors have been democrats, stretching over the last 37 years, I fail to see how this is a conservative problem. Especially considering most conservatives consider 3 of the 4 to be liberal.

I know hundreds of conservatives that have no problem helping the needy and disabled, though they do have problems with some of the places the money is actually going in this state.

the problem with the state is a considerable amount of money is slated to parks and recreation, some cities have a park within every square mile. the costs of building and keeping those parks are often paid for by state money. Does that sound like a conservative thing? Problem is both sides of the isle have their priorities wrong in colorado, parks and recreation are nice, but lack of basic services for the disabled are lacking.
