Services for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities/ Related Conditions:
Le Sueur County Human Services provides support and assistance to individuals with disabilities including, but not limited to: Intellectual Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Autism, or other related conditions.
To assess potential eligibility, you will meet with a social worker who will assist you through the process. After a determination of eligibility is made, social workers work with individuals to access needed services and supports such as: case management, and home and community based services. Our goal is to assist individuals to live as independently as possible in their home or community setting.
Who is eligible:
Eligibility is determined through a Rule 185 evaluation which includes school, medical, and psychological records, full scale IQ scores and adaptive behavior findings. Information based on these documents would determine eligibility. A social worker will assist you through this process.
Le Sueur County Human Services provides MnCHOICES assessments. A MnCHOICES assessment determines eligibility for long-term care services and supports. See MN DHS's "What you can expect with a MnChoices assessment" brochure for additional information. Le Sueur County Public Health also offers MnChoices assessments for other programs (CADI, Elderly Waiver), please see their website if you are looking for their services instead.
