Early Intervention Services provide services for children birth to three years of age who demonstrate a disability or delay in their development. Early Childhood Education Specialists and Therapists work with parents and their child to develop activities and learning techniques which can be used in the natural environment to enhance the child’s development. This service is provided in the home and in the community, as needed for each child.
Family Support Services
This program is for eligible children and adults living with their families. The Family Support Services Program provides a pool of funds to be used in a flexible manner to assist most-in-need families who provide support to a family member with a developmental disability in the home.
Children’s Extensive Support Waiver
The Children’s Extensive Support (CES) waiver provides specific targeted services and supports to assist a child with developmental disabilities to remain in the family home, support the long term stability of the family setting and prevent out-of-home placement for the child.
Supported Living Services
Supported Living Services are used to supplement already available supports for adults who either can live independently with limited support or are principally supported from other sources, such as their family.
