Welcome to the Sandusky County Board of Developmental Disabilities, located here in Fremont, Ohio.  Thank you for visiting our website today to learn a little bit more about what we have to offer to the individuals we serve, their families, and our community. We have a long standing motto here in Sandusky County, “We Serve For A Lifetime”.  What this means is that we can offer services starting from Early Intervention, to school age and adult services.  Our goal at the Sandusky County Board of Developmental Disabilities is to make resources and services easily available to those in need.
