Newstart ICF-MR

There are currently five ICF/MR homes serving six individuals each. Individuals served in the program must have a primary diagnosis of mental retardation or related condition and be eligible for Medicaid. Admissions are dependent upon bed availability. The program emphasizes positive behaviors in a homelike setting for adults who have severe and moderate levels of mental retardation. There is an emphasis on developing self-help, safety and appropriate social skills.
