How do I access adult services in Pennsylvania?

First contact your County’s Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities office.  Provide them with documentation of diagnoses (Autism, Intellectual Disability), and set up a meeting to discuss supports coordination.

Once assigned a supports coordinator, they will complete assessments to determine the level of need (PUNs).  Once assigned a level of need (Planning, Critical, Emergency), they will generate an Individual Support Plan that will outline individual goals and what services are available.

You are able to select which providers you would like to provide the service.
