The Board for Developmental Disabilities is seeking residents of King County interested in serving on the board. The board is a 15-member citizen’s advisory board, which provides oversight of community services for residents of the County who have intellectual/developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, or other neurological impairments, and their families. The board develops plans, makes recommendations on the use of available funds, and advocates for increases in state funding and improvements in services for children, youth, adults and families. The board values diverse perspectives and life experiences and people of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including people with disabilities, people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, LGBTQ, and veterans.
If you are interested in learning more about the Board, please contact Jim Ott, Information and Outreach Manager, at 206-263-9060 or More information on the Board can be found by visiting the Board’s webpage at
