Adult Waiver participants are eligible for additional occupational, physical and speech therapy services of a habilitative - not a restorative - nature. These services require prior approval. Each of the therapies must be recommended, in writing, by the individual service planning team. The team must document the individual's specific therapy needs and services to be provided by a licensed professional. These therapies should be long-term, working with the individual, family members, support workers and others, not short-term, acute restorative needs.
