The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is pleased to share news of the publication of the 55 Pa. Code, Chapter 6100 Regulations. These regulations are new rules that strengthen services to individuals with intellectual disabilities or autism and their families. Current regulations regarding licensing were also revised to align with Chapter 6100.
The new regulations help to support individuals so that they may live and participate in their communities, achieve greater independence, and are better able to enjoy the same type of opportunities and life as all Pennsylvanians. Additionally, these regulations promote person-centered approaches, community integration, personal choice, quality in service delivery, health and safety protections, employment, accountability in the utilization of resources, and innovation in services design.
The published regulations appear in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, Volume 49, Number 40, published on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
