Monitor Service Providers

What is Monitoring?

As the federally mandated Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System for the state of Indiana, IDR may conduct independent monitoring visits of public and private facilities that provide services to people with disabilities. This includes facilities that provide services to both children and adults. During a monitoring visit, IDR staff may speak with the clients receiving services about any concerns or complaints and to also provide resources about their legal rights and IDR’s advocacy services. IDR may also speak with staff, examine the facility, and review program documents regarding suspected abuse and neglect.
