Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD) Services

IDD PROGRAMS AND SERVICES OFFERED

 

Lakes Regional offers a variety of support to individuals with intellectual disabilities. We will provide you with a Service Coordinator to help you determine and manage the various services available to you.

Your Service Coordinator is your single point of contact for all the various programs you can utilize. They provides assistance in developing an individualized plan of services, including prioritization of services, identification of providers, budget development and plan monitoring throughout the year.

We are devoted to providing the most exceptional care for individuals with an Intellectual Developmental Disability. The goal of our team is to provide timely and individualized specialized services to individuals and their families, targeting a decrease in crisis behavior and an increase in the individuals’ ability to calm themselves and/or their caregivers’ skills to assist them in the process.

We strive to stabilize an individual and remove the risk for out-of-home treatment or placement.

All IDD services are to be established through the IDD Authority offices, where they will provide assistance in determining which programs may be best for you or your loved one. As a service to the individual being served, they will provide determination of eligibility and benefits, and then coordinate specialized services through IDD Provider Programs available.
