Tenn. Guidelines Confuse Agencies

Tennessee agencies that care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are struggling to help those they care for achieve life goals, according to a court-appointed review panel.Each of the 19 service providers evaluated in the latest round of biannual quality reports published at the end of May was rated noncompliant in helping people meet goals such as doing dishes or checking the mail.But the panel’s results don’t mean these 19 agencies are doing a bad job in the state’s eyes. All were found partially or fully compliant with individual planning standards in the most recent quality reports from the state Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
