For years, the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) has used local dollars to pay for employment supports or meaningful day opportunities for students with an ID diagnosis who finished school, but were still on the waiting list for a Medicaid Waiver. Now that the CSB is including people with developmental disabilities in their services, they are looking at reducing the amount of funding going to all graduates as the population of people in need grows.
If your child is a past FCPS graduate, a future grad, or you’re concerned and want to ensure people with disabilities have real options and supports after high school, please participate in the resource challenge in person, in person wrap up session, and/or the online innovation challenge. Share your creative ideas for how we fund the most graduates, most efficiently! We’ll see you there.
