§ 6000.701. Definitions.

 (a)  Family support services include services defined in Chapter 6350 (relating to family resources services) and subsequent statements of policy such as Mental Retardation Bulletin No. 99-83-24, titled: DHS Policy on Support Services for Persons with Mental Retardation and Their Families and Mental Retardation Bulletin No. 99-84-21, titled: Supplement Agreement to the DHS Policy on Support Services for Persons with Mental Retardation and Their Families.

 (b)  Family-driven is a method of providing family support services whereby the family or the person with mental retardation, rather than the service system, are given the responsibility for deciding which services will best address the family’s specific needs. In a family-driven model, family members also have a primary responsibility for planning, implementing, evaluating and setting priorities on services to address their specific needs.
