LIDDA TCM One Pager
Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have distinct, lifelong needs that require individualized supports. Picture someone you know with Autism, cerebral palsy, or a disability that affects the person’s intellectual functioning. You have probably observed times where the person was very successful in school, at a job, or at a community activity and times when the person struggled. Often, the difference between a good and bad outcome is the level of support and engagement the person receives from the community. That’s where Local Intellectual and Developmental Disability Authority (LIDDA) case managers make a difference in people’s lives.
LIDDA: Targeted Case Management Issue Brief
The service delivery system for Texans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) is slated to undergo significant changes in the coming years; most notably, Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and Texas Home Living (TxHmL) services and supports will be shifted from services managed by the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to services managed by insurance companies (referred to as “managed care”).
