Support Coordination


Support Coordination is a service provided most often by privately owned agencies under contract with the Division, though at times by Division employees as well in limited situations.

  • Support Coordinators assist individuals with disabilities and their families to develop plans to find the most appropriate services and select the most appropriate service delivery model, based on the individual person’s needs and wishes.
  • In all cases, the Support Coordinator is the first and best option to help a family determine what services are available to best suit a person’s needs.
  • DSPD works closely with Support Coordinators to monitor the quality of the services they provide. At all times, it is important for a person or family to know that they get to choose who works for them as their support coordinator. DSPD will help when it comes time to choose a support coordinator.
