Children and Family Programs
Our Children’s Programs provide assistance to families with children who are demonstrating a developmental delay, have an established condition, or who have developmental disabilities. Through case management, an Individualized Plan is created to identify family priorities, coordinate resources, and ensure entitlements while promoting the development of every child.
Early Intervention Services
The Early Intervention Program supports families of children under the age of three, who have been diagnosed with an established condition known to have a high probability of resulting in significant delays in development; or are demonstrating a 25% delay in at least one domain of development by:
- Providing Service Coordination and Case Management Services to connect families to resources
- Coordinating and providing payment for Therapeutic interventions embedded within each child’s daily routines and natural environments
- Supporting children and families as they transition out of services

Children’s Home and Community Based Services Medicaid Waiver (CHCBS Waiver)
The CHCBS Medicaid Waiver is available to Colorado residents who have a child or children with a disability and who do not qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) through the Social Security Administration. Families who qualify for SSI automatically receive Medicaid benefits for their children. SSI eligibility is based on the family’s income and assets. If a family does not qualify for SSI but needs insurance for their child/ children, this waiver provides Medicaid for the child with the disability even though the parent’s income or assets make them ineligible for SSI, and therefore for Medicaid.
Colorado’s Children with Autism Medicaid Waiver (CWA Waiver)
Parent’s who have children under the age of six years with a medical diagnosis of autism may apply for the CWA. Children enrolled in this waiver may be eligible to receive therapies from Medicaid providers even though their parents have assets or income that make them ineligible for Medicaid.
