This is a process of reviewing clinical evaluations that will determine your eligibility for state funded services and the types of services you can be referred to.

How long will the process take?

The screening typically only takes a few hours, once all needed evaluations are present.

Can I change who I get services from?

Yes.

What type of disabilities do I need to have in order to qualify for services and supports?

Developmental disabilities are the generic type of disability that needs to be present. Two of the more frequently identified conditions are Mental Retardation and Autism. There are many others that are called cognitive impairments that also meet the definition of developmental disability. There must also be functional limitations that are present in order to meet the requirements for supports and services.

What services do you provide?

We will provide a screening that will determine if you meet the eligibility requirements for state funding, link you to providers of services that you will choose, and (if you stay inour service area) monitor your satisfaction with the services you are receiving.

Should I pursue guardianship?

This is a difficult question to answer.  Guardianship should not be entered into lightly because it involves the loss of personal rights.  We suggest that if you think a guardian may be needed that you speak with the physician who is providing treatment and an attorney who has experience in guardianship law.

As soon as you can since this is needed for eligibility for state funded services.
