A Model for Serving Adults with Complex Communication Needs
Tools for Life has been working in conjunction with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities to serve Georgians with developmental disabilities who are on the waiting list for Medicaid waivers. Research was conducted on a model for service delivery of AT which focused on improving performance skills important to the individual and upon quality of life. Results of the study will be shared in the context of a series of case studies that will shed light on the challenges that these individuals and their families faces. These experiences have revealed some important lessons that speak to what we do in preparation for Transition. The Tools for Life team will share their insights and lead a discussion of how this study sheds light on possible ways to better serve this population.
