*PASRR services are intended to help people increase functional skills, maintain independence and stay connected with their communities. Every individual receiving services through the PASRR program has a person-centered evaluation that determines the needs and services that will be provided. Services may include family or peer-mentoring, community access, employment or behavior supports, habilitative therapies or assistive technology. An individual does not have to be a client of the Developmental Disabilities Administration in order to qualify for PASRR services.
