Before participating in “The Waiver”, Chad chose to stay home a lot and often refused to go out. Now Chad has a life of his own. He can do his own things and his mother now has time for her own activities. He socializes more and he has lost weight. He is far more independent now that he is on “The Waiver”. He also gets to participate in a number of different programs that he and his mother picked out together. Chad and his mother also get to choose his own Personal Assistance (PA) workers – this helps to make sure that Chad gets the services that are right for him.
