Years of Grant: 2022

Grantee: Living Arrangements for the Developmentally Disabled (LADD)

Council staff responsible: Kim Shoaf

Goal of Project

This project will establish a new model, supported by a Medicaid waiver, of determining supportive and assistive technology and direct support professional (DSP) services that will support people with developmental disabilities to lead independent lives. The model considers technology first, including the needs of an individual to be trained to use the technology, and then assesses how DSPs can fill the gaps in service.
