HIGHLAND COUNTY BOARD OF DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES
Service and Support Administration is responsible to determine if a person, child or adult, is eligible for County Board services.
As part of the application, a person must provide evidence of a developmental disability as defined in Ohio Revised Code, must have manifested before age 22, and is likely to continue indefinitely.
While the list is numerous, such disabilities include, but are not limited to, Autism, Epilepsy, Mental Retardation, Spina Bifida and Traumatic Brain Injury. Once this has been established, the person will be evaluated on their current functional abilities.
If under the age of 6, a child’s eligibility is determined by the existence of developmental delays or an established risk of a delay.
