I need to know how to get the DDD’s help for him. If you could email me with this information ASAP it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Joshua

    • Hi Joshua, Call this number and ask about applying for DDD benefits. They will set you up with the proper office for your area: (866) 229-5553. Alternately, you can visit the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities website at: Good luck!

      • If you still need help please let me know. My son is six years old and he has DDD services. You can contact Raising a Special Child for help. The organization actually helped me to get DDD service for my son.
