It really depends on your son's specific needs. DBMD has a much shorter
interest list and I would encourage you to be put on both interest lists as
well as HCS and TxHmL or MDCP if your son potentially qualifies.
I have attached a chart that compares the waivers' different services as well
as the eligibility criteria for you to review and see which services would be
the most benefit to your son. If you have specific questions feel free to email
me and we can discuss those.
