Case Management / Support Coordination
The Loudoun County Case Management / Support Coordination program coordinates the delivery of services for persons with intellectual disabilities. This includes a comprehensive assessment of individual needs in the areas of housing, vocational training / employment, physical health, income / finance, psychological / psychiatric treatment, and others. This assessment includes the compilation of developmental, educational, vocational, social, and psychological evaluations as well as information from the person's family and other service providers.
Once the individual has been assigned a Case Manager / Support Coordinator, a service plan is prepared which includes the strategies most appropriate for meeting the needs of the person. The Case Manager / Support Coordinator then assists the individual and family by linking or connecting them with the identified, available service provider(s) or resources.
Once the plan has been implemented, the Case Manager / Support Coordinator monitors the plan on a regular basis to assure that the services address individual health and safety needs are effective and that the individual is satisfied with the providers and the services available.
