Avenues to Community has a contract with the Dane County Department of Human Services to provide case management to children who are eligible for the CLTS waiver. The CLTS waiver is available to children and youth under the age of 22 who have a diagnosis of an intellectual and/or developmental disability, physical disability, and/or mental health disability. To receive services in Dane County, a child must be living in Dane County and be eligible for Medicaid. A child/youth must also be found eligible by meeting a level of care that is typically provided in a setting such as a hospital, nursing home, or institution for people with developmental disabilities. A screening tool known as the Functional Screen is used to determine a person’s level of care.
There are a broad range of services offered through the CLTS Waiver Program to meet the needs and goals of your child and your family. Each plan is individualized and a CLTS case manager will work with children and their families to identify needs and goals that will help a child be an active participant in their home and community. In addition to a case manager some examples of possible services include:
– Adaptive aids
– Communication aids
– Daily live skills training
