Developmental Disabilities

Who is eligible for Developmental Disabilities Services?

Case management services are available to children and adults with developmental disabilities. A MnCHOICES assessment is the first step in determining if an individual qualifies for services. The individual must have a documented diagnosis of intellectual disability or a related condition. A related condition means a severe, chronic disability resulting in impairment of intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior. The individual must have substantial functional limitations in areas such as self-care, learning, mobility, communication self-direction and independent living. The assessment to determine IQ and functional skills must be conducted by a licensed psychologist or school psychologist.
