The bill makes changes to a program (program) within the
department of human services (department) for children and youth with
intellectual and developmental disabilities or co-occurring disorders

department for the program is expanded to include planning for services

child or youth, and extends all notification requirements related to the
program to the parent or legal guardian as well.
The bill updates reimbursement provisions so that if a child or
