IDDI provides residential, educational, day habilitation and treatment services to children, adolescents, and adults with severe-to-profound mental retardation, which may be accompanied by behavior disorders, physical challenges, and/or medical conditions.

We realize the significance of a family's decision to consider a residential placement for their loved one, and we are happy to provide information about IDDI's Crystal Springs School, for children under 22 years of age, our Adult Program for individuals over the age of 22, and our admissions process.

An open admissions policy is in place throughout the year for our Children's Program; referrals are accepted from parents, clinicians, local education authorities, and state agencies whose responsibilities include appropriate education and treatment planning.

Admission to our Adult Program is handled internally, when those students in the Children's Program turn 22 years of age. These students are provided a transitional classroom to prepare them for an adult program or a possible transfer to IDDI's Adult Program when the time is deemed appropriate and if there is adequate space.

IDDI recognizes that no two individuals are alike, and every aspect of its community is designed to support and enhance a person's unique social, emotional, physical and educational development. Upon admission, an individual program is created by a multidisciplinary team consisting of specialists from each of our Service disciplines: Educational, Medical, Clinical, Adaptive and Therapeutic, and Residential. If an applicant is determined appropriate, a classroom and residence are targeted. The IDDI team works in conjunction with families on an ongoing basis to ensure the transition is a smooth and stress-free experience for everyone involved.

At IDDI, we believe that parents are an integral part of their child's program and that family involvement is critical. As such, we also offer support throughout the year so parents are better able to understand and fully participate in all phases of treatment.
