Waiver Services

Waiver services are divided into the following categories:

  • Employment and Alternate Day Options
  • Self-directed and Agency-directed Options
  • Residential Options
  • Crisis Support Options
  • Medical and Behavioral Support Options
  • Additional Options

Each of the options contain multiple services which are available in one or more of the DD Waivers. Information about these services is available from your supervisor. It is important that you know about the variety of supports that are available so that you can assist in planning for each person you support. You can refer to this document or other agency documents as needed to become familiar with the array of service options rather than trying to remember all of them.
