The Autism Waiver enables individuals who have autism spectrum disorder and who meet an institutional level of care to be supported in their own homes or community-based settings. Due to the high demand for Autism Waiver services and a defined capacity, individuals wishing to receive waiver services must have their name placed on the Autism Waiver Registry. As waiver capacity permits, invitations to apply are sent to interested families as their names approach the top of the registry list. Once individuals turn 21, the Maryland Department of Health provides notification that they will be removed from the registry.
