Autism Waiver

The Medicaid Home and Community-Based Autism Waiver Program coordinated by the Division of Business, Fiscal, and Information Systems (DBFIS) of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is a collaborative effort that provides non-educational services to qualified students with autism and their families.


Staff members from the Autism Waiver Program collaborate with the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and the Montgomery County Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to coordinate and monitor services for participants in the program. Through the Autism Waiver Program, students and families receive respite care, environmental accessibility adaptations, family training, supported adult life planning, and intensive individual support services in the home and community, therapeutic integration service, service coordination and, in some cases, residential habilitation service.

What We Do:

Provide information and support to families who may qualify for the Autism Waiver.
