With many state agencies under budgetary pressure, solid information on costs and outcomes of services for people with disabilities has never been more important. For the first time, that hard-to-find information is collected in a single volume for policy makers, advocates, providers, and researchers. Blending original research with policy analysis, critical reviews of existing knowledge, and examples of cutting-edge programs and policies, this book shows what works and helps readers make sound decisions about how to allocate resources. Topics discussed include differences in outcomes and costs among various community service models, costs of family care, criteria used to allocate funds for community services, budgeting and funding, public policy considerations, costs and outcomes of consumer-directed services, staffing, and recommendations for future policy and practice. The highly respected international contributors to this volume represent a wide range of fields, including disability services, research, evaluation, policy analysis, and administration. Readers will be better prepared to meet federal mandates for individualized services and improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
