Narrative

DESE/DDS services are designed to prevent residential placement of a child under 18 with extensive care needs due to a significant disabling condition. DESE/DDS participant children/families are prioritized and designated by DDS to participate in the program.

Families receiving DESE/DDS services develop a Family Plan and budget approved by the DDS Children & Transition Coordinator. Typically families receive longer-term intensive levels of support and case management from a Family Support Specialist. Once accepted into the program services may continue through the child’s 22nd birthday.Services may include any of the support options available through the Family Centers. Many families use a portion of funding for direct support to augment PCA services.
