Services and Supports We Provide
Service and Support Administration
Vinton DD provides Service and Support Administrators (SSAs) to individuals that qualify for services. SSA’s help identify needs and connect you to community resources and services that may meet those needs. SSA’s coordinate a host of services including social, medical, education, and employment. Vinton DD also provides a program called Family Support Services (FSS). FSS is a program that provides financial assistance to individuals who live with their family members and qualify based on taxable income.
Early Intervention Services
Early Intervention (EI) services are provided to children ages birth through 2 who have, or are at-risk of having a developmental delay. After permission is received, a family/child assessment is completed to determine eligibility.
Services are provided as described by the child/family Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP) that is developed by Help Me Grow. Services are individualized to meet the unique needs of each family and child and are available in the family /caregiver home. Home-based services are available year round. EI services are provided under the guidelines set by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities; 5123:2-1-04.
Home and community-based waivers are one way to receive funding to help pay for services needed to live at home or in a community-based setting. Another option is an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) which is a place where a person with a disability can live and receive services in a group setting. For more information about ICF options, click here. The State offers an interactive map to help locate ICFs throughout Ohio. To use the map tool, click here.
Family Support Services
Through money provided by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, income eligible individuals and members of their families can access funds for adaptive home improvements or to purchase needed items that promote an independent lifestyle.
Limited funds are available to individuals who need additional residential support and who are not eligible for a Medicaid Waiver. Money can be used to pay a Service Provider to assist with training in the development of personal and independent living skills. The amount of money provided is based on the individual and the level of support needed to promote independence and ensure all health and safety needs.
Through an agreement with the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services and the Ohio Department of DD, Medicaid funds are available to qualifying individuals. Each participant must have a level of care that requires a support system for them to successfully live in the community. Individuals can then select a Service Provider and with the support of team members, determine their personal needs and necessary level of support.
