Services provided in the sasi Article 16 Clinic include:
The Referral Process
To receive Article 16 services an individual must be referred by their Service Coordinator and be diagnosed as having a developmental disability. If a diagnosis has not already been established, a psychological evaluation can be done by the clinic's psychologist. The Clinic Treatment Coordinator reviews the referral for services and completes the intake process with the individual and/or their family. After the Medical Director reviews the referral and authorizes admission into the clinic, the appropriate clinician completes an assessment and develops a treatment plan to provide services as needed.
