  3. Revisions include the revised definitions of Intellectual Disability and Developmental Disability that were taken from the AAIDD and the DSC V definitions. The Board also reviewed draft language on Termination/Appeals. Individuals who are in Home and community Based (HCBS) Waivers must be offered the right to appeal a termination from a HCBS waiver service; language needs to be redrafted to indicate this. The Division will finalize the changes and send to DHS Rules Bureau.
