Summary

The bill creates the family and community intervener program
(program) to support children who are deafblind and their families. The
program provides deafblind children the services of an intervener who is
specifically trained in deafblindness, building language and
communication skills, and intervention strategies with children who are
deafblind and their community, families, and environment. The Colorado
commission for the deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind (commission)
shall contract with an intervener program manager (manager) who has
oversight over the program, the intervener activities, and the outcomes for
children who are deafblind.
Starting in 2025, and upon the approval of the department of
health care policy and financing, the commission shall have the manager
direct eligible children to receive intervener services through the home-
and community-based services provided by the community first choice
option of the federal Social Security Act.
The program is funded through the Colorado telephone users with
disabilities fund.
