Each year, TCDD is required to submit to the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities a program performance report that summarizes activities and accomplishments achieved while implementing the approved State Plan. In this report, the TCDD features the PATHS program at the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University and one of its students, Walter Shumac III. The report includes results of consumer satisfaction and stakeholder surveys, as well as other specific measures required by AIDD. In addition, TCDD develops a summarized version of the report, which describes key accomplishments and outcomes.
