Children's Long Term Support (CLTS)
WHAT IS CLTS?
CLTS is a Medicaid Waiver Program designed to serve children with long term support needs. CLTS provides funding for services to support children with physical disabilities, developmental disabilities or severe emotional disturbances who would otherwise be at risk for institutional level care. Funding can be used to support a range of services based on an assessment of the needs of the child and his or her family.
WHAT TREATMENT AND SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are a broad range of services offered through the CLTS Waiver Program to meet the needs and goals of your child and your family.

Some examples of possible services include:
- Adaptive aids

- Daily living skills training
- Day services
- Home modifications
- Supportive home care
