To qualify for Supervised Group Living placement, an individual must have been diagnosed with an intellectual disability, developmental disability, or related condition prior to the age of 22 years and the condition must be expected to continue indefinitely.
The individual must meet level of care criteria. Level of care is determined by assessing six major life areas. Those areas include self-care, learning, self-direction, capacity for independent living, understanding and use of language, and mobility. The individual must exhibit substantial functional limitations in at least three of the six areas. An individual may NOT receive home- and community-based waiver services while in SGL placement.
