Developmental Disabilities

a community for everyone

On the Arlington Board, as a Northern Virginia leader, and now as a State Senator, Barbara will continue to focus particular attention on programs to support and integrate individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) into our community. Given the Department of Justice Report on the need to create the least restrictive environment for those with ID and developmental disabilities, Senator Favola is continuing to work with community leaders and non-profit providers to create community-based and tailored services for these individuals. She is a fierce advocate for reducing the Medicaid wavier waiting list.
