About the Smithtown Office for People with Disabilities (OPD)
The Smithtown Town Board created the Office for People with Disabilities in 1984 to address the unique concerns of Smithtown citizens with disabilities. The Office for People with Disabilities endeavors to increase understanding, facilitate socialization and disseminate pertinent information to disabled persons and their families.
The Office for People with Disabilities is aided by a "OPD Advisory Board", a group of local residents well versed in the challenges faced by the disabled. Appointed to two year terms by the Smithtown Town Board, these citizens serve without compensation. Their extensive professional backgrounds provide the understanding & expertise to deal with varied challenges faced by those with a disability.
This page has been prepared to acquaint you with the many services that the town provides for the physically and developmentally challenged of Smithtown.
