The Intellectual Disability Program serves children from 3 years old until 21 and adults over 21 years old who have an intellectual disability diagnosis and reside in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 

The Intellectual Disability Program typically receives referrals from individuals with intellectual disabilities and from families with minors who have an intellectual disability. A referral can be made by contacting our offices at 717-399-7355 or by email to request an intake. The Individual with the intellectual disability must be in agreement with the intake and it is preferred that the family be in agreement with the support also.

Following the intake process, eligibility will be determined and a decision letter is mailed informing the Individual whether or not a record will be opened. If a record is opened, the Individual will work with a Support Coordinator.

Support Coordinators will assist individuals with intellectual disability to connect with supports they need to be as independent as possible. Support Coordinators meet with individuals and their families to review their strength and need areas, and to develop an Individual Support Plan. They explain what different services offer and assist individuals by requesting funding for services. Supports coordinators are a link between the individual and their family and the service providers.

Funding is based upon need and records are initially opened with no funding attached.
