For NEW Consumers:
When a first-time consumer with a developmental disability requires access to the system, Common Ground (call 248-456-8137 X2410) provides the initial screening.  Common Ground will ask the following questions to assess eligibility requirements:

      1. Self-care: Does the person have problems feeding or taking care of their personal needs                        without help most of the time? 
      2. Receptive/Expressive Language: Does the person have problems talking or communicating                   his/her needs to others or understanding what someone says most of the time? 
      3. Learning: Does the person have problems learning new skills or things most of the time? 
      4. Mobility: Does the person have a problem walking or getting around most of the time? 
      5. Self-Direction: Does the person have problems doing their daily routine without help most of                  the time? 
      6. Capacity for Independent Living: 
          Does the person have a problem staying under emotional or behavioral control most of the time?
              or
          Does the person have problems living on his/her own most of the time? 
      7. Economic Self-Sufficiency: Does the person have problems paying bills and managing money on           his or her own?

          (At least 3 of the 7 items must be answered yes to be considered eligible to receive
