1. Benefits

Eligible applicants may access the services of:

  • Cognitive Disability Consultants – people who are available to support families with the development of appropriate behavioural support plans; and

2. Eligibility

Eligible individuals must have a cognitive disability and an unmet need related to the cognitive disability that can be addressed by an evidence-based intervention and cannot be supported by another system.
