The Applicant Orientation to Enrollment and Provision of Quality Services in the Intellectual Disability or Autism (ID/A) Service System has been developed by the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) to ensure that all applicants intending to provide waiver services for individuals with an intellectual disability have a basic understanding of how the Intellectual Disability or Autism (ID/A) system operates prior to starting services. This Orientation is required for any new applicant seeking approval to provide services under the ODP Consolidated and/or Person Family Directed Support Waivers (P/FDS).

The Provider Applicant Orientation is offered free-of-charge and approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Developmental Programs. The Orientation is a one day class and must be attended in its entirety in order to receive credit for completion.
