Your Service Coordinator helps plan your services. Planning occurs at scheduled meetings.
You decide who is on your ISP team. It must include you, your Service Coordinator, and any developmental disabilities providers you get services from. If you have a guardian, he or she is also on the team. You can invite other family, friends, or organizations who support you.
This meeting is with your ISP team. There are at least two meetings each year. Your "annual ISP" is the main planning meeting. Other meetings discuss your progress toward your goals. If your services and supports are not meeting your needs, any team member can call your Service Coordinator to request a meeting at any time. Before your annual ISP meeting, your coordinator talks with you about your needs and what types of services and supports are available to you.
Funding is based on your needs. An assessment is completed to determine your Individual Budget Amount (IBA). You can use this amount to purchase services. Learn about the process used in the DD Services Assessment & Budgeting Brochure. En Español aquí.
If you are a participant or guardian you can have access to Therap, the electronic case management system.
Being eligible does not mean you will receive funding for services right away. There is not currently enough funds available for all requests. Once eligible, you will be placed on the wait list by your date of application. Services will be offered when funding becomes available.
