1. Simply call 972-727-9133, Lifepath Systems’ Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities’ (IDD) Services, and ask to speak to an Intake Specialist. The Intake Specialist will provide you with the basic information you need to get started in the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services system. The Intake Specialist will also answer your questions about services available in Collin County or the state of Texas. They can assist you with navigating the waiting lists for Texas Medicaid waiver services, placing you on a waiting list or directing you to the appropriate agency for additional information.
  2. If you or your family member appears to be eligible for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services, the Intake Specialist will request information and documents required for eligibility determination. These documents may often be submitted through the mail or fax; in some cases, a meeting with our psychologist may be needed to complete the eligibility process.
  3. After reviewing this information, eligible individuals will be scheduled for an Intake appointment either at your home or in our offices.
  4. Please remember that there are waiting lists for many services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Texas. It is important that you contact us as early as possible so that we can begin the process.
