The Office of Intellectual Disabilities (OID) provides a variety of services for persons with intellectual disabilities, including many purchased from community organizations. All services are planned, coordinated and monitored by OID and promote optimal independence for individuals and their families.
Supports coordination is provided to everyone who is registered, and includes needs assessment and service planning, locating, coordinating and monitoring. Specialized intellectual disabilities services can include Family Support Services, in-home services, adult day services, supportive employment, life skills training, and residential services. Availability is contingent upon eligibility and capacity. General community and family resources are utilized as much as possible. The Supports Coordination Organization can be contracted by calling 610-713-2400 or via fax at 610-713-2369.
Persons eligible for services will have been tested before the age of 22, determined to have an I. Q. under 70, and have functional limitations.
