317:40-7-3.Eligibility for Waiver Employment Services
[Revised 7-11-05]
(a) Individuals served through Waiver Employment Services must be:
(1) 16 years of age or older for persons receiving services through the Community Waiver, or 18 years of age or older for persons receiving services through the In Home Supports Waiver or the Homeward Bound Waiver; and
(2) approved for waiver services in accordance with OAC 317:40-1-1.
(b) Services available to the service recipient through the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) or through the state or local education agency are not funded under Waiver Employment Services.
(1) Service recipients may utilize waiver employment services during times when school is not in session, unless an IEP approved program through the school system is in place.
(2) All service recipients seeking supported competitive employment make application to DRS. Prior to the authorization of Waiver Employment Services, the case manager completes OKDHS Form DDS-55, Documentation of Application for DRS Supported Employment Services, to be maintained as a permanent entry in the local case record.
(3) Since services provided by DRS are time-limited by federal law, DDSD provides long term, on-going supports for individuals who need long-term supports, as described in OAC 317:40-7-11.
