What are environmental adaptations?

(1) Environmental adaptations provide physical adaptations within the physical structure of the home, or outside the home to provide access to the home. The need must be identified by the DDA assessment and the participant's person-centered service plan.
(2) Environmental adaptions are available in all of the DDA HCBS waivers.
(3) An environmental adaption must be necessary to:
(a) Maintain the health, welfare, and safety of the participant, the participant's caregiver, or both; or
(b) Increase the participant's independence in the home.
(4) Only the children's intensive in-home behavioral support (CIIBS) and individual and family services (IFS) waivers may include adaptations to the home necessary to prevent property destruction caused by the participant's behavior, as addressed in the participant's positive behavior support plan.
