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.
