Intake Information for Services for Persons with Developmental (Including Intellectual) Disabilities
The CSB is the "point of entry" to apply for services for residents of Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church who have developmental disabilities.
To be eligible for services, individuals must meet certain diagnostic and functional criteria. In addition, to be eligible for Medicaid Developmental Disability waivers, the individual must also have a social security number. To learn more about the application process (information also available in Spanish) and to schedule an appointment please call 703-324-4400 (TTY 711) to contact an Intake Support Coordinator.
The Commonwealth of Virginia redesigned the service delivery systems and Home and Community Based Waivers for individuals with Developmental Disabilities and Intellectual Disability into one integrated "Developmental Disability" system. The term "developmental disability" is now understood to include "intellectual disability," as well as autism and other developmental disabilities. To learn more about the redesign or waivers please visit the My Life My Community section of the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) website. or the county’s Long-Term Care Coordinating Council information about other types of Medicaid waivers and resources for children with disabilities.
