Documentation must include recent evaluations or assessments such as comprehensive evaluation reports, psychological evaluations from psychologist/psychiatrist that include IQ testing with diagnosis of intellectual disability prior to the age of 22. We can assist you with IQ testing, if necessary.
Don’t worry if these records are not conveniently available to you. We can obtain them after you sign the necessary release of information forms.
What Happens Next?
The ID Intake Specialist will review the information you supplied and a determination of eligibility will be made.
If the individual is determined to be eligible, you will be notified and assigned a Supports Coordinator. The Supports Coordinator will then become your primary contact person at WCSI and will be the person responsible for locating, coordinating and monitoring your services and supports.
If the individual is determined not eligible, the Intake Specialist will notify you and may refer you to other possible community resources.
