The Agency for Persons with Disabilities works in partnership with local communities to support persons with developmental disabilities in living, learning and working in their communities. APD provides critical services and supports for persons with developmental disabilities to reach their full potential in the home and community. The agency serves Floridians with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome,
intellectual disabilities, Prader-Willi syndrome, and spina bifida.
APD customers may be served by funding provided through several waiver programs to provide services in their community. Other customers are provided assistance without being put in a waiver program. Some APD customers are served at Developmental
Disability Centers. The agency is currently helping over 35,000 Floridians with developmental disabilities through these programs.
