Matt’s Story

A forty-eight-year-old male was placed in a state facility when he was five years old. His mother did have contact with him during the time he was in school, but financially was unable to care for him while maintaining employment. During his late thirties he was placed in an Intermediate Care Facility for Mental Retardation in the Dallas community and attended a day program. There were numerous incidents of attention-seeking behaviors, including disruptive behavior and destroying property. This past year he received a HCS slot and his mother became his foster provider. He successfully lives in the community in an apartment and his behaviors have decreased because of his new environment. He attends a day program, and participates in numerous activities such as movies, bowling, church, and going out to dinner in public restaurants. The mother and son appear to be happy and well adjusted to this new quality of life.
