Service Coordination

9: "The term service coordination reflects current concepts of family and person-centered philosophies, and emphasizes the central role the individual/family plays in identifying needed services. Service coordination will assist individuals and families in working with complex systems across agency lines, and will enhance their ability to live full lives in the community and school."
