The Richland/Lexington Disabilities and Special Needs Board provides Service Coordination for individuals with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD). PDD is a larger term that includes Autism Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome.

The PDD Waiver provides Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) services and Service Coordination Services to children who have been diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder, including autism and Asperger’s Syndrome and who meet the ICF-MR level of care criteria. The waiver serves children ages three through ten and is time limited. Services are not provided in a setting where educational services are being provided. The goal of the waiver is to develop skills of children in the areas of cognition, behavior, communication and social interaction.

If a parent/legal guardian is interested in receiving services through the PDD Waiver and his/her child is currently eligible for DDSN services, the parent/legal guardian should contact the child’s Service Coordinator and request that the child go through the intake process for the PDD Waiver.
