Quality Assurance for Adult Developmental Training Services.
Whenever the Department of Healthcare and Family Services or the Department of Human Services pays
the cost, directly or
indirectly, in whole
or part, for adult developmental training day services for persons with
developmental disabilities, the provider of such services shall meet
minimum standards established by the Department. Such minimum standards
shall become effective July 1, 1986. Interim program guidelines,
established by the Department, shall be utilized for programs operational
prior to July 1, 1985.
The Department shall annually certify that adult developmental training day
services providers meet minimum standards. The Department may determine
that providers accredited under nationally recognized accreditation
programs are deemed to have met the standards established by the Department
under this Section. The Department shall, at least quarterly, review the
services being provided to assure compliance with the standards. The
Department may suspend, refuse to renew or deny certification to any
provider who fails to meet any or all such standards, as provided by rule.
For purposes of this Section, "adult developmental training day service"
means services designed to help persons with developmental disabilities to
develop functional skills for living in such areas as motoric development,
dressing and grooming, toileting, eating, language, reading and writing,
quantitative skills development, independent living and reduction of
maladaptive behavior. Such programs may include services designed to
improve an individual's ability to engage in productive work as defined
for work activity centers in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, as amended.
For purposes of this Section, "providers of adult developmental training day
services" means any person, agency or organization that provides such
services for persons with developmental disabilities as defined by the
