The Support Coordinator

The Support Coordinator is your primary contact in Early Intervention. A Support Coordinator is a person on the Early Intervention team who will work in collaboration with you to seek services for your child and family, to coordinate them with you and other professionals, and to make sure that they are delivered properly. You will begin working with a Support Coordinator as soon as your child is referred for early intervention services.

Your Support Coordinator can help you with:

  • Notifying you of opportunities to participate in community events and activities with other children and families
  • Informing you of community resources that may benefit you and your family
  • Making sure you know about local support groups and parent networks
  • Screening and tracking children who are at-risk for developmental delays
  • Coordinating initial and ongoing evaluations and assessments of your child and family
  • Facilitating and participating in the development, implementation and reviews of your Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSP)
  • Assisting you in identifying and gaining access to Early Intervention services and other supports identified in your IFSP
  • Facilitating the timely delivery of Early Intervention services
  • Assisting you in identifying available service providers and facilitating communication with and between you and your service provider
  • Coordinating and monitoring the delivery of Early Intervention services
  • Monitoring progress of your IFSP outcomes on a quarterly basis
  • Informing you of your rights and procedural safeguards in Early Intervention as well as availability of advocacy services
  • Assisting you in dealing with medical and health services your child needs or is receiving
  • Facilitating the development of a transition plan as a part of the IFSP

Your Support Coordinator will review your plan with you every 90 days. If you have any questions or concerns or need information, you can contact your Support Coordinator. Some other resources for information include your doctor, your church or other local churches, or your local library.
