Individual Support Plan
Each child served has an individually tailored plan of care called an Individual Support Plan developed by the child's network of support. It defines how the Service's Coordinator will support them throughout the year. The I/DD Services Coordinator works closely with the child and their family/network of support to help them progress toward their identified goals comprised of educational aspirations, community integration goals, and plans for transitioning into adulthood.
