Who Can Apply

An individual can be admitted to the ACS if he/she has been determined by OPWDD to have a developmental disability. Establishment of a disability by OPWDD is based on a diagnosis of intellectual/ developmental disability, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or neurological impairment, and a substantial adaptive behavior deficit. Individuals whose functional and developmental needs can be met by ACS’ programs will be evaluated for placement. Individuals must be enrolled or eligible for enrollment in the Home and Community Based Services Waiver program. Due to the intense community based activities that our programs provide, we are not equipped to handle individuals that require medication to be administered throughout the day.
