The program cuts announced Monday will save the agency around $7 million a year.
That includes limiting intensive speech and language therapy for children to no more than 75 visits a year.
The state Department of Health and Human Services on Monday released a final proposal to trim that deficit.
The agency is asking the state's financial oversight board to allow it to run a deficit that would be covered by state surpluses. That proposal is up for approval next week.
