Case management is part of community support for children and youth with special needs and their families. A case manager will listen to family’s concerns and offer resources and support. Case management services include:
- supporting and assisting families in their hard work to access services for their children
- attending meetings with families
- working with families to identify strengths and needs
- coordinating treatment plans
- monitoring services to be provided
- advocating for services in the plan
Who is eligible?
Children, birth-20, who meet the definition of intellectually disabled, developmentally delayed or have a pervasive developmental disorder are eligible for SCF case management services. SCF will enroll children/youth or help families find alternate case management services and resources. Once enrolled, and as needed, SCF case management can continue until a young person reaches 21 years of age.
Case Management services are funded by Mainecare/Katie Beckett.
SCF provides case management services through a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services.
