MHMR Concho Valley offers an array of services to individuals who meet the eligibility criteria for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) and strives to ensure they are connected to the resources they need to live meaningful and healthy lives.
Intellectual disability (formerly referred to as mental retardation) is characterized by significant limitations in intellectual functioning (reasoning, learning, problem solving) and adaptive behavior (practical and social skills).
Our intake specialist will work with referrals to gather necessary records and schedule an appointment for a Determination of Intellectual Disability (DID) assessment, if necessary. A DID is typically determined by IQ testing.
Interested individuals will be placed on the statewide interest list for the Home and Community Based Services (HCS) Program and Texas Home Living Program and provided resources for other relevant programs or community services.
To schedule an intake appointment or to receive more information on IDD Services, please contact our intake line at (325) 658-7750 or email us at email@example.com.
