The Intellectual Disability Department of Human Services provides Support Coordination services for individuals with Intellectual Disabilities who live in Crawford County. Intellectual Disability is defined as having a below average level of intelligence and significant limitations in major life activities such as learning, language skills, and the capacity for independent living. These conditions usually occur during the developmental period of a person’s life, which occurs before they reach 22 years of age.
All individuals will be assigned a Supports Coordinator (SC) who will assist in locating, coordinating, and monitoring services and supports. The SC will complete an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) with the people who have an important role in the individual’s life. This plan will outline the individual’s likes and abilities, as well as their goals and desired outcomes in life. The SC will complete a Prioritization of Urgency of Needs (PUNS) form, which will assist the individual and their family in planning for future needs.
The SC may if needed refer the individual for formal support services through one of the many provider agencies operating in the county. These services may assist the individual in increasing their independence in a wide variety of areas, such as daily living skills, vocational skills, and community integration. There are also a variety of residential support programs, which could be designed to support the individual in the least restrictive environment, while still ensuring their health and safety.
