Planning and Specialized Service Coordination


The Planning & Specialized Service Coordination program uses a person-directed approach while working with adults that have a developmental disability to help them outline their goals and build a future that focuses on their strengths. The Specialized Service Coordinators guide individuals through a flexible and open-ended planning process that promotes choice, sound decision-making and autonomy.


The support you can expect from Planning and Specialized Service Coordination include the following:

  • Support to build a customized plan that achieves the best possible quality of life.
  • Explore community resources and coordinate services that meet all aspects of a person’s life.
  • Educate people that have direct funding on how to use their funds and create a support network that is affordable and personalized.
  • Foster meaningful networks and lasting relationships with family, friends and community members.
