DD waiver info

I am going to attend a community info meeting for Hennepin County tomorrow so I can better understand waivers, which is something we are trying to get Akila on. Here is the info in case anyone else needs to learn more:

Developmental Disabilities Waiver Overview

Developmental Disabilities (DD) Waiver services provide funds to teach life skills in the home and community. This training reviews the menu of services provided by a licensed or traditional service provider and outlines the similarities and differences. This session will also provide an overview of Consumer Directed Community Support (CDCS). We will also be discussing changes in non-licensed personal support services. Attendance is highly recommended if you are currently receiving DD Waiver services. If you are interested in more information on CDCS please call our coverage line at 612-596-6630.

Who Should Attend?
Parents, providers, legal representatives and persons with disabilities

please take notes - I would be there if i wasn't going to be out of town the next day - chaos compounded isn't a pretty thing to think of.

I would like notes too. We will be driving 6 hours that afternoon/ evening to visit our son in the intensive treatment unit. I'm told he won't qualify for DD, but that jail seems to be available to him!!! I'm thinking a waiver would be cheaper and more beneficial.
