Intake and Registration
There are several ways you may register for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) services. These include:
- Call the Regional Integrated Human Services, Inc. (RIHS) Developmental Services Office at (724) 836-6215 and ask for an IDD Intake. Someone will take brief demographic information and a Developmental Support Specialist will call you back.
- Register online at www.compass.state.pa.us. COMPASS is an online application for Pennsylvanians to apply for many health and human service programs. This application will go to a RIHS Developmental Support Specialist who will contact you once they receive the notification of your application.
- If you currently have a WCSI Behavioral Health Case Manager or a WCSI Early Intervention Service Coordinator, you can reach out to them to assist with the registration process.
