National Core Indicators - IDD (NCI-IDD) In-Person Survey


The National Core Indicators - IDD In-Person Survey Project (also known as the "NCI Project") helps New York make things better for adults who have an intellectual or developmental disability. Vital Research is working with the New York Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) on this project. Vital Research’s trained interviewers will meet with adults “remotely” over video conference to learn how well the services they receive meet their needs and how the services could be improved. This survey will give them opportunity to share their opinions, feedback, and personal experiences about the services received from the state.
