Children’s Long-Term Support Program (CLTS)
What is CLTS?
The Children’s Long-Term Support (CLTS) Program helps children with disabilities and their families through supports and services that help children grow and live their best lives. This is a Medicaid Wavier program that funds services for kids with disabilities. A waiver lets states use Medicaid to fund additional non-medical services and supports not normally offered. The CLTS Program aims to keep kids at home instead of at an institution. The Children’s Long Term Support Program helps children with disabilities and their families through supports and services that help children grow and live their best lives in their home and community. These supports and services help the child and family reach their goals:
- Be a part of their home and community.
- Complete daily living tasks.
- Learn new skills and develop new interests.
- Live their best life.
What is Children's Community Options Program (CCOP)?
The purpose of CCOP is to provide a coordinated approach to supporting families who have a child with a disability. This approach recognizes and maximizes the family’s capacity, resiliency, and unique abilities. The intention is to better support, nurture, and facilitate self-determination, interdependence, and inclusion in all facets of community life for the child and family. CCOP funds are for purchasing goods and services that respond to assessed needs and desired outcomes, as identified in each participant’s child and family-centered individual service plan (ISP).
What services are available?
There are a broad range of services offered through the CLTS Waiver Program to meet the needs and goals of your child and your family. These services may help your child perform activities of daily living, participate in home and community activities, control their environment and have enriched surroundings. Some examples of possible services include:
- Adaptive aids
