Intensive Transition Services for Individuals

The Department expanded vendor-operated services to include intensive transition services (also referred to as ITS). These services are offered to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and co-occurring psychiatric disabilities. ITS provides additional support to individuals moving from an IMD, PDC, or restrictive setting to a less restrictive setting in the community.

  • Risk assessments;
  • Developing comprehensive Person-Centered Plans;
