  • Functional Behavioral Assessment (SELF service)
    A Functional Behavioral Assessment can help a person understand why they do the things they do. It is meant to help someone who hurts themselves, hurts other people, or damages property, because they feel upset or stressed, or sometimes without knowing why they do it. A Functional Behavioral Assessment looks at all kinds of things that may influence how someone acts, such as where they live, who they live with, how often they go out, and what medications they take. Then, the assessment is used to make a plan to help someone change behaviors that might be harmful to themselves or others.

It is not a requirement of the Individual Options or Level One waivers, but participant-direction is a requirement of the SELF Waiver. The person enrolled or a representative they choose must be willing and able to direct at least one service. The person’s service and support administrator, or SSA, will assess them for a need for Homemaker/Personal Care. If there is a need, the SSA will include it in the person’s individual service plan. A person can choose to direct their Homemaker/Personal Care services through any of the waivers offered by DODD. Participant-direction gives the person more control and authority to decide who provides their services and how those services are provided. The person must want to be in charge of staff employer responsibility but can receive assistance.
