If your child is eligible to receive Habilitation or Attendant Care services through the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), you may be eligible to provide some of those services yourself as a paid Parent Provider. This blog explains how AZA United can help.
In recent years, the autism service landscape has changed and services providers have found that there are commonplace instances where a parent provides these services for their children and as such, they can be paid for providing this care. This is an option even if they aren’t taking time away from a paid career in order to do so.
Here are the key points of this program to consider:
AZA United will always make every effort to match appropriate habilitation and attendant care workers with our clients, and families can still rely on us to do that to the best of our ability. However, there are a few reasons why some parents choose to be a Parent Provider. These include:
AZA United is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for interested parents. The first step is to fill out an application. Our team will contact you with next steps. This application is ONLY for parents/guardians who would like to work with their own minor children. Note: all other applicants (siblings, family members, referrals, parents of adult children, etc.) should still use our standard Habilitation & Respite job application.
AZA United is putting extra efforts in place to make sure that the process of getting started is faster and easier than ever, especially for parents applying for this role. For more specific details in the scope and process to become a Parent Provider, check out AZA’s FAQs or schedule a call with our Family Support Team.
Our Family Support Team provides support and guidance for families facing any number of challenges as they navigate the Autism journey. This service is available at no charge to all members of the autism and developmental disability community. You may make a phone appointment that works with your schedule by visiting azaunited.org/supportcall
