Description

The 2014 Home and Community-Based Services Waiver (HCBS) regulations hold enormous potential for the way support services are provided to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These new regulations mark one step closer to the promise of the Olmstead Decision - upholding the "most integrated setting possible" standard of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act!

Pat Fratangelo will explain in layman’s terms what the HCBS Waiver is all about and its impact to the people whose lives we support and the agencies that support them. She will also talk about how the meaning is often misconstrued. Michael Kendrick will then pick up and speak about programmatic designs that can change and be incorporated to come into the spirit of what people with disabilities ask in keeping with the tenant of the HCBS Waiver. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of the upcoming changes while feeling more mobilized to be creative in your work.
