  • rules

(1) Support services for adults are intended to meet the needs of adults with developmental disabilities and to prevent or delay their need for comprehensive services. The Department of Human Services shall establish by rule the application and eligibility determination processes for support services for adults.

(2) Support services for adults shall be provided through a support service brokerage and pursuant to an individualized written service plan that is developed and reassessed at least annually using a person-centered planning process.

(3) The department shall ensure that each individual receiving support services for adults has an active role in choosing the services, activities and purchases that will best meet the individual’s needs and preferences and to express those choices verbally, using sign language or by other appropriate methods of communication.

(4) The services, activities and purchases available as support services for adults include, but are not limited to:

(a) Community living and inclusion supports that facilitate independence and promote community integration by supporting the individual to live as independently as possible;

(b) Employment services;

(c) Environmental accessibility adaptations;

(d) Specialized supports; and

(e) Specialized medical equipment and supplies.

(5) Support services for adults must complement the existing formal and informal supports, services, activities and purchases available to an adult living in the adult’s own home or the home of the adult’s family.

(6) The department shall ensure that each individual has the opportunity to confirm satisfaction with the support services for adults that the individual receives and to makes changes in the services as necessary.

(7) The department shall ensure that all adults with developmental disabilities receiving comprehensive services have an equal opportunity for job placements. A provider of developmental disability services that offers job placements may not give preference to an adult with disabilities who is a resident of a facility owned or operated by the provider when determining eligibility for a job placement. The residence of an adult with developmental disabilities may not be the exclusive factor in determining eligibility for a job placement. [Formerly 427.402]
