Developmental Disabilities can affect cognitive, behavioural, or psychosocial functioning. Types of developmental disabilities include Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Intellectual Disability, and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

HSO’s Developmental Disabilities Services standards are intended for organizations providing services across the continuum of care for children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities, and their families. The diverse range of services needed to maximize the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities includes prevention, early identification, education, developmental skill building, behavior management; and social, vocational, housing, and residential supports. These standards promote a clientcentred approach to service delivery to help clients achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being, independence and quality of life.

HSO’s Developmental Disabilities Services Standards contain the following sections:

  • Investing in Developmental Disabilities Services
  • Having the Right People
  • Delivering Developmental Disabilities Services
  • Maintaining Client Information
  • Monitoring the Safety and Quality of Developmental Disabilities Services

    This is a standalone HSO standard and is not meant for assessment purposes. If you are part of an assessment program (such as accreditation) with one of our partners such as Accreditation Canada, NIAZ, IQG or others, your assessment provider will provide you with the assessment standard before it is introduced to your program. For information on assessment standards or to obtain the copy specific to your program, please contact your assessment provider.

    Requesting printed standards: Standards purchased online are delivered as printable PDF downloads. If you would like a copy printed and shipped to you, please email publications@healthstandards.org
