As the number of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities eligible for publicly-funded supports and services continues to grow, the delivery system serving this population must adapt to meet their changing needs.
This resource paper summarizes important trends and challenges facing the publicly-funded service delivery system for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Among the topics discussed are the evolving role of the case manager; transitions from school to adult systems of care; and quality oversight.
This policy brief is a product of CHCS’ Innovations in Systems of Care for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities series, made possible through Schaller Anderson, an Aetna company. The series helps state and other policymakers identify and implement systems of care that improve outcomes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and their communities.
