Assistive Tech Criteria Omission

Pg. 90 of 333, “enable individuals to increase their abilities to perform activities of daily living (ADLs), or to perceive, control, or communicate with the environment in which they live, or which are necessary for life support, including the ancillary supplies and equipment necessary to the proper functioning of such technology.”

These criteria omit the current criteria, “actively participate in other waiver services that are part of their plan for supports,“ which many individuals and waiver service providers have relied on to improve utilization of services that increase access to their community, independent living skills, direct their services, and achieve a variety of outcomes. 

Please add this important criteria back into the waiver AT service.
