CHILDREN'S SPECIAL NEEDS SERVICES
Programs offered include:
CST is available for children and families who are involved in two or more service systems or are at risk of out of home placement. Children must meet the criteria of Severe Emotional Disturbance or be experiencing AODA issues, and be experiencing a functional impairment in two or more domains of life. Children and Parents must be willing to be active members of the CST process.
The first three years are the most important building blocks of your child's future. Every family wants their children to grow to their fullest potential, especially during this formative time. Some children who have developmental delays or disabilities need additional support. One way this support is provided is through early intervention.
There are three approved CLTS Waivers for children with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and severe emotional disturbances. The CLTS Waiver is funded through a combination of federal, state and local match dollars. The purpose of the waivers is to help families support their children at home. Federal rules define how CLTS Waiver funding can be used.
The Family Support Program is a funding source available to families who have a child with a severe disability. FSP funds may be used to assist families in purchasing a good or service related to the child's disability, that is not covered by private insurane or other funding programs. State Statute and the FSP Advisory Committee determine how the funds may be used.
CCS is a program designed for persons with mental health and substance abuse needs, who are living in the community. CCS programs will provide psycho-social rehabilitation services to consumers who have needs for ongoing, high or low-intensity services resulting from mental health or substance use disorders. CCS focuses on creating an individualized plan that is consumer driven, recovery oriented, strength and outcome based to maximize consumers independence.
COMMUNITY OPTIONS PROGRAM (COP)
Community Options Program is a funding source that may be used as the county contribution for locally matched Children's Long-Term Support Waivers.
