Yamhill County Developmental Disabilities Program offers services in a variety of settings for youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). Service options are dependent on Medicaid eligibility and disability-related needs. Please call our office at 503-434-7460 for more information about the services listed below.
Service Coordination (Case Management)
All individuals determined eligible for our services will be assigned a Services Coordinator. Your Services Coordinator will meet with you to assess needs, eligibility, and explain service choices. You will receive information about Medicaid eligibility and if needed, be provided assistance to apply. Your Services Coordinator will offer to develop a service plan that focuses on your child's strengths, gifts, talents, and their hopes and dreams. In addition, the plan will address what works best for your child and what supports are needed to reach their goals.
You may choose to receive services in your family home with your youth. A Service Coordinator will work with you in assessing what supports and services are available to your child to support independence, improve access to the community, promote health and safety, and assist with communication.
Services are available to care for children outside of family homes as a choice of service. These include Foster Homes, Host Homes, and, 24-Hour Residential Homes. Child Foster Homes are single-family residences providing care in a home-like setting. Host Homes are run by provider agencies, but typically only serve 1 to 2 children and are run similarly to a 24-hour residential home. Residential Homes offer 24-hour awake staffing and are managed by provider organizations. All home settings are regularly monitored by Services Coordinators, with certification and licensing oversight by the Oregon Department of Human Services Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODHS-ODDS), to assure the health and safety of the youth.
Children's Intensive In-Home Services (CIIS)
CIIS is a DHS-ODDS Case Management program serving children with intensive medical or behavioral needs at home. To participate in this program, individuals must meet additional program-specific criteria.
Additional information on services for children with I/DD can be found in the Services for Children with I/DD (PDF) brochure.
