Service Coordination

In total darkness we are all the same, only our knowledge separates us. Don't let your eyes deceive you. --- Janet Jackson, The Rhythm Nation CD

The Aiken County Board of Disabilities and Tri-Development Center provide services to people the severe lifelong disabilities of autism, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and similar disabilities, and mental retardation and related disabilities. We recognize that people with disabilities have the same needs as the rest of the residents of our community. Many of these needs are provided by other agencies and we work to assist those we serve in being able to access and take advantage of those services. Such services include educational, medical, mental health, social, public health, and housing services as well as other services.

In addition, people with disabilities usually have needs that go beyond the services provided by other agencies. They may need unique specialized services. These services should supplement and enhance, not replace, services provided by other agencies. A person with disabilities may need help locating, accessing, and coordinating services among agencies. The Aiken County Board of Disabilities and Tri-Development Center employ service coordinators and early interventionists to help establish, implement, and monitor individualized plans of supports. The service coordinator arranges and combines an array of disability services in concert with services provided by other agencies. Service coordinators also serve families as the single point of entry into the disabilities system and as a continuing contact person and advocate.
