Individualized Funding

I have heard of individualized funding before, and it seems far off and out of reach for me.

I have heard that persons with intellect disabilities (Downs Syndrome and FAS) can qualify quickly.

I have also heard that people with disabilities that affect hygiene and motor abilities are approved quickly too.

Oh, Individualized Funding means that a person, once qualified, is given a monthly cheque to hire and coordinate their own “staff”.  With people who are intellectually  disabled usually have someone else managing this monthly supplement.

Now, for me, I am hoping that I can use this funding to hire and manage my own intervenors.  WHY not?  I mean, my main disability focuses on communication, so therefore, it is on the same wavelength as hygienic care and support with learning etc.

What are your thoughts?
