The 1970s marked a decade of growth.
The Weaver School and Workshop opened in Tallmadge in 1971, and two more adult centers opened by the end of the decade. Residential programs began with the goal of bringing individuals who lived in institutions back to Summit County. By the end of the 70s, more than 1,100 adults and children were served and Summit DD offered social services, home training, preschool, school services, adult services, residential services and transportation.
