OSSPEAC In ACTION: Please take action by contacting your state legislators regarding the age range for DD- During our July Board Meeting, the OSHGAC report included legislative efforts to expand the age range for Developmental Disabilities. The upper age range is incorrectly identified as 5; current law states age six years, or upon entering kindergarten. Attached you’ll find information regarding Sen. Brenner’s request for co-sponsors of his senate companion bill to HB 454 and talking points which were provided during OSHGAC discussions.
