SCORPIO PARENT & PISCES CHILD

A Pisces child and its Scorpio parent form a harmonious union. As both are water signs, they understand each other very well and are easily amenable to any social situation. Scorpio is a brooding and secretive type, while Pisces is idealistic and impractical. The Pisces child has a tendency to be introspective, and can understand the parent`s mysterious nature. Pisces offers gentleness, kindness, and sympathy, which Scorpio appreciates. As a result, they are able to accommodate well. This is why they enjoy even the silent moments together. They understand each other`s dreams and plans like none other. They communicate on a very deep level, and both are willing to go an extra mile to accommodate the other`s needs and the feelings. The best aspect of this relationship is their similar emotional natures. They complement and blend with one another very well. Their mutual empathy and commitment keeps the conversation flowing between them.

Planning and Policy Councils

DIDD has five planning and policy councils to allow for public collaboration on issues affecting the people we support, those interested in our services, and the department.  The department appreciates the input and ideas these councils have generated.  Some of the councils will have vacancies in the near future including seats for people receiving services, family members of people in services or on the waiting list, providers, and other community organizations that support people with disabilities.  We need your expertise and experience because we value your opinion.  The department urges those who are interested in serving and willing to volunteer their talents and time, to complete an Interest Form.  A link to the form is available here.

New council members will begin their service in January 2016. Member terms are three years, and chair appointments are two years.  Meetings are held quarterly with the Statewide and DDPPC meetings held in Nashville and regional meetings in Knoxville, Jackson/Cordova/Arlington, and Nashville.

Pursuant to TCA 33-2-202 and 33-2-203, the Statewide, Developmental Disabilities, East Regional, Middle Regional, and West Regional Planning and Policy Councils shall have the following purpose:

The Councils shall advise the Statewide Planning and Policy Council (SPPC) on a desirable array of prevention, early intervention, treatment, and habilitation services and supports for persons supported and their families, and such other matters as the Commissioner or the SPPC may request; and provide information and advice to the department on policy, formulation of budget requests, and development and evaluation of services and supports.

We look forward to the input and ideas that council members will contribute, and we welcome this collaboration between DIDD, persons supported, families, providers, and advocates.  The deadline for form submissions is November 30, 2015.  Forms can be returned via e-mail to Solita.Morris@tn.gov, or mailed to Solita Morris, Policy and Innovation, 400 Deaderick Street - 9th Floor, Nashville, TN  37243.

Garner Appointed to SPPC

I’m pleased to announce that Phillip Garner has been appointed chair of the DIDD Statewide Planning and Policy Council by Governor Haslam.  The appointment is effective immediately, and runs through September 28, 2017.  Garner has been the Executive Director of Buffalo River Services since 1989.  He has led the agency through several initiatives, including closing the agency’s workshops and establishing person centered practices through the Person Centered Organization Grant.  Under Garner’s leadership, the agency recently acquired accreditation through the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL).  He is also an at-large member on the Board of TNCO and active on several TNCO committees.  Phil is well known and respected many people throughout the provider and advocacy community.  I’m certain his leadership will continue to foster the successful partnership between the council and department.  I’m looking forward to working with him, the council and all stakeholders to ensure our services and supports are the best possible for Tennesseans with disabilities. 

Planning and Policy Council Vacancies

When DIDD became a department in 2011, the Tennessee Code Annotated (TCA) was updated to reflect this change and also to create Statewide and Regional Planning and Policy Councils (PPC), as well as a Developmental Disabilities Statewide PPC to allow for public collaboration on issues affecting the department, people we support, and those interested in our services.  The department appreciates the input and ideas these Councils have generated.  Four of the five councils will have vacancies in the near future.  We need your expertise and experience because we value your opinion.  The department urges those who are interested in serving and willing to volunteer their talents and time, to complete an Interest Form.  A link to the form is available here. http://www.tn.gov/didd/PPC/index.shtml    New council members will begin their service in January 2015.

Pursuant to TCA 33-2-202 and 33-2-203, the Developmental Disabilities Statewide, East Regional, Middle Regional, and West Regional PPCs shall have the following purpose:

The Councils shall advise the Statewide Planning and Policy Council (SPPC) on a desirable array of prevention, early intervention, treatment, and habilitation services and supports for persons supported and their families, and such other matters as the Commissioner or the SPPC may request; and provide information and advice to the department on policy, formulation of budget requests, and development and evaluation of services and supports.

We look forward to the input and ideas council members will contribute and welcome this collaboration between DIDD, persons supported, families, providers, and advocates. The deadline for form submissions is December 19, 2014.  Forms can be returned via e-mail to Hollie.Campbell@tn.gov or by mail to Hollie Campbell, Deputy Director, Policy and Innovation, 400 Deaderick Street - 9th Floor, Nashville, TN  37243.
