|Statement of Purpose|
This is a Fiscal Year 2006 Supplemental Appropriation to the Department of Health & Welfare for services for the developmentally disabled in the Community Developmental Disability Services Program. This bill provides additional funding for the Infant/Toddler Program to purchase contracted services of social workers, audiologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, and to buy hearing aides and other assistive and adaptive technology. The Idaho Infant Toddler Program identifies and provides services for children from birth to three years of age with developmental disabilities. The current resources are insufficient to meet the current and projected service demands. The state is currently out of federal compliance in two areas 1) failure to assure timely evaluations and 2) delays in delivering all early intervention services according to plans for eligible children. Most of the growth is occurring in Ada, Cassia, Kootenai, and Bonneville counties.
This bill provides an additional $730,000 in General Funds, and $70,000 in agency receipts for a total ongoing impact of $800,000.
