Gabriella Dunn reports at The Wichita Eagle:
McRae Wooten, a 21-year-old with intellectual and developmental disabilities who has been on a state waiting list for services for more than seven years, is about to get help.
Wooten received an offer for state services after The Eagle published a story about her last week.
Another 3,293 Kansans like Wooten are still waiting for help. Another 1,086 Kansans with physical disabilities also are waiting.
A seven-year wait is typical, according to the state. The program is funded by federal and state grants.
Wooten is diagnosed with mental retardation, developmental delays, autism and seizure disorder.
