Individuals must have a developmental disability which is attributable to a mental/intellectual or physical impairment which occurred before the age of 22. It must be determined that the disability is likely to continue indefinitely AND that it results in a substantial functional limitation in two or more major life activities.
The Springfield Regional Office determines if someone meets the eligibility criteria. Once the Regional Office determines the person is eligible, they refer the individual to the Center for Human Services where a Service Coordinator will be immediately assigned and contact made within 24 hours.
