Intellectual Disabilities and Autism

The Erie County Office of Intellectual Disabilities provides management, oversight, service authorization and system compliance for persons diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as autism. Services and supports are delivered by a contracted network of service provider agencies, located both locally and out of the county.  Services are paid for by either a federal- and state-funded Waiver program (Person/Family Directed Supports, Community Living, or Consolidated) or through county and state Base funds. Services are coordinated by the Supports Coordination Organization and the county Office of Intellectual Disabilities.

Services include residential, in-home and community supports; community participation supports; employment services; family support services; agency with choice; transportation; behavior support; specialized therapies; and case management.

Eligibility determination for intellectual disabilities and autism services and supports can be accessed by contacting the Intake Department at Erie County Care Management (ECCM).
