Intellectual Disabilities and Autism Services

Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism by providing comprehensive support and resources tailored to their unique needs to make an Everyday Life achievable for all Pennsylvanians.

There are a number of services that can be provided to meet the needs of an individual registered with the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP). This list of services is subject to change as service definitions change and waiver amendments are approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Please contact your Supports Coordinator or the County Mental Health/Intellectual Disabilities (MH/ID) Program to find the list of services and the corresponding service definitions.

Services and Supports Directory

The Services and Supports Directory is a tool for individuals with intellectual disabilities, their families, and the individual's team to locate services and service providers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The directory can help you locate particular service providers or search for services and supports provided in an individual's community. This directory does not include information on all providers, only those who have chosen to be listed.
