Waivers have extra program rules and some programs may have waitlists. The Children's Extensive Support Waiver helps children and families by providing services and supports that will help children establish a long-term foundation for community inclusion as they grow into adulthood. The Supported Living Services (SLS) waiver services for adults with developmental disabilities are used to supplement already available supports for individuals who either can live independently with limited supports or, if they need extensive support, are principally supported from other sources, such as the family. The Home and Community-Based Services Waiver For Persons With Developmental Disabilities (DD) provides access to 24-hour, seven days a week supervision through Residential Habilitation and Day Habilitation Services and Supports. The service provider is responsible for living arrangements. Living arrangements can range from host homes settings with 1-2 persons, individualized settings of 1-3 persons, and group settings of 4-8 persons, as well as residential supports for participants who live with and/or are provided services by members of their family.
