Developmental Disabilities Administration, Enhanced Case Management Program (ECMP)

  • WHAT: Enhanced Case Management (ECMP) is a program within the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA). ECMP case managers have a smaller case load (1:30) than the standard caseload (1:75).
  • WHO: Individuals and families who need extra support when there are concerns about isolation, the home environment or quality of care.
  • WHEN: ECMP CRM’s can make at least four home visits per year. Case Managers may support caregivers by providing referrals and resources to access respite, help the client engage with their community, and assist in the process to obtain environmental accommodations (such as placing ramps in home) and more.
  • WHERE: The Enhanced Case Management Program serves clients who reside in their own homes or with family, rather than residential settings (Adult Family Home, Supported Living, etc.)
  • HOW: DDA Clients are enrolled onto ECMP through a referral and approval process; they may be considered for the program due to a triggering factor or at a case manager or supervisor’s recommendation. Some issues that may trigger a referral are APS/CPS involvement, aging caregiver, isolation, and low BMI. There are about 1500 ECMP clients statewide.
