If your student is receiving special education services under the criteria of intellectual disabilities or autism there are two different agencies you will need to contact. If you live in Williamson Co. you would contact Bluebonnet Community Services (MHMR) at 244-8482 and ask for an intake to get you in their system and signed up on the Medicaid Wavier Program HCS (Home & Community Services). If you live in Travis Co. you would call Austin Travis Integral Care at 483-5841 to do the same thing. No matter what county you live in you need to call CLASS (Community Living & Support Services) at 1-877-438-5658. It is another Medicaid Waiver program. These Medicaid Waiver programs help people get the supports they need in the community. If you go to our Flyers, Information, etc. page there is a document that explains about these waivers in detail.
We would also suggest you go to our Links page at the very bottom to check out "Its A New Idea". This link gives you information in regards to special education and Texas Law. We highly recommend this.
If you have any questions regarding RRISD special education services or resources please call us.
