Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD)
Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) is an agency separate from the Department of Children and Families, specifically tasked with serving the needs of Floridians with developmental disabilities.
Among those served are people with: Autism, Cerebral palsy, Spina bifida, Intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, & Children age 3-5 who are at a high risk of a developmental disability.
Supports persons with developmental disabilities in living, learning and working, in all aspects of community life.
The APD works in partnership with local communities and private providers to assist people who have developmental disabilities and their families.
APD also provides assistance in identifying the needs of people with developmental disabilities for supports and services. 305 East Drive, Suite L • West Melbourne, Florida 32904 • (321) 409-6518
400 West Robinson Street, Suite S430, Orlando, FL 32801. (321) 604-4273 • (407) 317-7000.

The APD program can provide a Waiver Support Coordinator (WSC) who can advise and coordinate the full range of services helpful to a person with special needs. The process by which someone gets access to a Waiver Support Coordinator (WSC) is as follows. 

  • Waiver Support Coordinators are not allowed to solicit a caseload. 
  • A disabled person must first become a client of APD (Agency for Persons with Disabilities). They then have to request to be put on the iBudget Home and Community-Based Waiver. 
  • If accepted for the Waiver, they are then given a "Choice Letter" with WSC's that have openings (they have a legal limit of 43 full cases with minors being considered "half cases"). The individual and their family interviews available WSC's then selects the one they like.
