Waivers/Supports Coordination

As a consumer, you are in control of your own life. Through LVCIL’s supports coordination, we can work with you to develop a service plan and connect with the services and resources you need to live independently. Currently, LVCIL provides supports coordination for people with disabilities living in Lehigh and Northampton Counties under the following waiver programs:

Adult Autism Waiver (AAW)

The Adult Autism Waiver (administered through Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Autism Services) is one of two programs in Pennsylvania specifically designed to help adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) participate in their communities in the way that they want to, based on their identified needs. LVCIL serves as a supports coordination agency for the AAW. Services are provided for persons living in Lehigh, Northampton, Berks, Carbon and Schuylkill Counties.

The goal of the Adult Autism Waiver is to:

  • Increase the person’s ability to care for themselves
  • Decrease family/caregiver stress 
  • Increase quality of life for both the person and the family 
  • Provide specialized supports to adults with ASD based on need 
  • Help adults with an ASD reach their employment goals 
  • Support more involvement in community activities 
  • Decrease crisis episodes and psychiatric hospitalizations

There is currently a waiting list to receive AAW services. If you are interested in becoming part of the list or would like more information, please contact the Bureau of Autism Services at 1-866-539-7689 or find them online at www.autisminpa.org.
