My boys have the Medicaid waiver here in NY and we hope to use their self-directed budgets through the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities to support the boys in living as independently as possible. This can include a housing subsidy, support staff, access to community classes and memberships (like to museums and gyms), etc. I guess that all hinges on how well Medicaid survives the current admin..
I do picture each in their own apartment with as needed staffing and work supports...
It looks as if this is a grass-roots parents group cobbling together a solution to a huge and scary problem. Do you know otherwise?
