additional services needed under the BI waiver

I am a support coordinator and one of my clients was grandfathered in from the day support waiver to the BI waiver.  While this waiver was able to meet his needs then, when the transition took place, it took away some of the other supports he was able to access through other sources.  The family used IFSP funds to cover respite services and with the transition to the BI waiver they are not longer able to do so.  Other resources have been explored (DARS) but you can only access them once.  The client now needs behavioral consultation services and is not able to access those services as they are not offered under the BI waiver.  Please consider expanding services under the BI wavier that would allow persons with this wavier whom are not appropriate for independent living to access other services that would meet their current needs.
