Developmental Disabilities

St. Louis County Public Health & Human Services provides Developmental Disabilities Services to adults and children who are eligible.

Who is eligible for Developmental Disabilities Services?

The case manager determines if a person qualifies for services. A person must have a documented diagnosis of mental retardation or a related condition. A related condition means a severe, chronic disability resulting in impairment of intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior. The person must have substantial functional limitations in areas such as self care, learning, mobility, communication, self direction and independent living. The assessment to determine IQ and functional skills must be conducted by a licensed psychologist or school psychologist.
