General Admission Criteria
This facility accepts referrals for individuals with developmental disabilities (please see Referral Process). The person must be at least eighteen years of age or older. An individual may be eligible who has intellectual disability (IQ of 70 or below on standard measures of intelligence) that results in a need for active treatment and manifested before the age of 18 years. An individual may also be eligible who has any related condition that is a severe, chronic disability that is attributable to cerebral palsy or epilepsy; or any other condition, other than mental illness, found to be closely related to intellectual disability because this condition results in impairment of general intellectual functioning or adaptive behavior similar to that of persons with an intellectual disability, and requires treatment or services similar to those required for these persons. Age of onset prior to 22 years old, likelihood that the condition will continue indefinitely, and substantial functional limitations in three or more of the major life areas which are self-care, understanding, and use of language, learning, mobility, self-direction, and capacity for independent living all deem eligibility for admission consideration under “related conditions”.
