Developmental disabilities services in Miami County
Each county in Ohio has a local board of developmental disabilities established by the state of Ohio in 1967. Riverside, however, was started in 1952 by parents who wanted more for their children with disabilities. So when the county agencies were established by the state in 1967, Riverside became that agency for Miami County, and the rest is history.
