IN HOME SUPPORTS

In Home Supports (IHS) services provides residential habilitation for children or young adults who have a developmental disability and significant medical or behavioral challenges.

These supports, provided with the help of an In Home Support service coordinator, include personal care and other related services to promote greater independence and skill development for children or young adults to allow them to remain living at home with their family and actively engage with their community.

To qualify, a child must have Medicaid, live at home with their family, and be 0-through age 20 and still in school.

In Home Supports services are intended to help the child and the family develop the skills that child needs to become an independent adult including such activities as:

° Working on making meals and snacks.

° Learning self-help skills such as showering, brushing teeth, dressing, and such.

° Practicing using money and making purchases at stores.

° Participating in social and recreational activities.

° Learning how to be safe at home and in the community.

° Getting exercise while having fun.
