Adult Service Coordination

Families and individuals can choose to work with the MDS service coordination team (ASC), self-directed service coordinators (SDS), or external service coordinators.

The Adult Service Coordination team assists adults with developmental and related disabilities as they identify personal goals, and then secures the supports and resources required to achieve them. Adult services are tailored to the needs of the individuals receiving supports and those closest to them that share in the vision. ASCs help individuals, their families, guardians, friends and staff develop and maintain the system of supports and services that enable individuals to live in their communities, work, develop meaningful relationships, and enjoy life to the fullest.

Adult Service Coordinators work with individuals and their families to:

  • Create an environment that empowers individuals to speak out for themselves and receive the highest quality services available;

  • Search for opportunities, connections and ways to make the seemingly impossible probable;

  • Offer information, explore options and network with others;

  • Increase community awareness of the talents and gifts those with disabilities can offer.

Adult Service Coordination partners with a number of state-approved Providers/Vendors for individual services.
