How to Apply
Who do I call?
To schedule an initial intake meeting, whether you are new or returning please contact Rikki Bowker at 316-322-8777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
What information is needed from me?
The following information is required to determine eligibility for I/DD services:
- I/DD Application
- Medical Examination/ Physical
- Psychological Evaluation (age 7 & up)
- Developmental Checklist (age 6 & under)
- Copy of Social Security Card
- Copy of Government issued ID (if Applicable)
- Copy of Medical Insurance Card
- Copy of Birth Certificate
- Guardianship Paperwork (if Applicable)
- Copy of most recent IEP (Individualized Education Plan)
How long does the intake appointment take?
The initial appointment will only take about 30 minutes. The I/DD application will be completed at the time of the intake and service options will be reviewed
Does the person applying for services need to be present for the intake?
The individual in which services are being applied for does not need to be present for the intake appointment. Information can be provided to a representative/guardian/legal parent on behalf of that individual. If the individual is their own guardian, they will be the only one able to sign any paperwork for I/DD services.
Once eligibility has been determined, and the individual is over the age of 5, a secondary appointment will need to be scheduled for a BASIS Screening to enter into the State of Kansas system. The individual applying for services must be present for this screening.
How long after the intake appointment, will eligibility determination be made?
Eligibility for I/DD services will be determined within 5 business days of the CDDO receiving all required information needed for the individual file. Applicants will be notified via mail of the determination for services.
