In-Home Autism Services

Intensive In-Home Autism Services
Intensive In-Home Autism Services consists of specialized programming provided to children in their home for a minimum of 20 hours per week (and up to to 35 hours per week). In order to qualify for these services, a child must meet the same eligibility requirements as the Children's Long Term Support Waiver Program, plus these additional criteria:
  • A disability determination.
  • A verified diagnosis (including testing that supports the diagnosis) of Autism, PDD NOS, or Asperger Syndrome.
  • Child is under 8 years of age (must have the above criteria prior to turning 8.)
  • Identification of a qualified provider ready to provide services to the child.
  • Less than three years of intensive in-home services from any source.
  • One year commitment from the family to participate in intensive services (defined as a minimum of 20 hours per week of face-to-face therapy with the child.)
  • Six months Wisconsin residency.
Children who complete three years of intensive in-home autism treatment services may be eligible to transition to ongoing services funded by the state.
Families may request to transition to ongoing services prior to their 3 year end date. These requests must meet certain criteria as stated in the Request to Transition Policy.

Once a child is approved for ongoing services, they may access any services allowable under the Children's Long Term Support Program Waiver, excluding Intensive In-Home Autism Services.
