DSPD offers a variety of services for both children and adults to help them participate fully in a community setting. Once a person is found eligible for services and removed from the waiting list, staff will assess the person's needs and assist in selecting the supports that best serve the person. Supports are determined by the person's needs and the amount of funding available. DSPD offers services through three Medicaid waivers: Mental Retardation and Other Related Conditions (MR/RC) Waiver, Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Waiver, and the Physical Disabilities (PD) Waiver. Medicaid waivers allow a person who qualifies for services in a nursing home or intermediate care facility for people with mental retardation (ICFMR) to receive services in their own home and community. Private Provider Services: DSPD contracts with a number of independently owned providers that provide a variety of services across the state. Some providers specialize in a particular type of service or specialize in working with a particular type of disability. The state certifies and/or licenses these providers and closely monitors their services. A list of providers in your area can be provided by DSPD.
