|RULE §48.2914||Special Services to Persons with Disabilities|
To be eligible for special services to persons with disabilities, clients must meet the functional need criteria as set by the department. The department uses a standardized assessment instrument to measure the client's ability to perform activities of daily living. This yields a score, which is a measure of the client's level of functional need. The department sets the minimum required score for a client to be eligible, which the department may periodically adjust commensurate with available funding. The department will seek stakeholder input before making any change in the minimum required score for functional eligibility. Applicants may be admitted to the attendant services program only if their needs do not exceed the program's available services.
