This module, unlike previous modules, only provides resource materials that you may need to access, or minimally, be aware of as you work with your employer. The goal of this module is for you to be able to quickly link to a broad spectrum of resources. The module is broken into ten sections for your convenience and we hope that you will find it beneficial.
The information below and their component parts are not meant to be exhaustive, but rather to serve as a source of information applicable to adults with disabilities. There will be some duplication between pages as some information has relevance to more than one category. In most cases, we have provided you with descriptions of resources directly from the agency or organization; the descriptions are their own with few exceptions.
An excellent resource
for a variety of services provided by the Department of Health
and Welfare is the Idaho Careline (dial 211 or
800-926-2588). The web address is: http://www.idahocareline.org/.
You will find more information about the Careline in Section 1.
In addition to the above, we have found the following website
to be particularly helpful as it contains links to many of the
major services in Idaho: www.familyvillage.wisc.edu/comm/idaho.html.
Section 1: HEALTH
AND WELFARE PROGRAMS
Section 2: SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
Section 3: DEVELOPMENTAL
Section 4: EMPLOYMENT
AND VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION
Section 5: EDUCATION
Section 6: RESIDENTIAL
Section 7: TRANSPORTATION
Section 8: RECREATION
Section 9: LEGAL SERVICES
Section 10: ASSISTIVE
We would highly recommend Keys to the Future: A Resource Book
for Parents of Children with Disabilities compiled and published
by the Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities. Though specifically
directed towards parents with children with disabilities, it nevertheless
is an excellent resource with broad ramifications. Please contact
the DD Council at 1-800-544-2433 or 802 W. Bannock, Suite 308, Boise,
