Intensive Services Coordination
The Intensive Services Coordinator provides case management support to families with children, ages 0-18, who have been identified as having complex special needs*.
These children would benefit from an extraordinary service response beyond what is currently available to them in the service system.
*Complex Special Needs is defined as having high needs stemming from significant functional limitations in life activities. As a result, there is impairment in three or more of the following areas:
- Mental Health
- Fort Albany
- Moose Factory
- The development of individualized family-centered plans
- Collaboration with other service agencies to provide needed support
- Advocacy and referrals to needed services
- Referral to special needs counselling support
- Psychological assessments
- Family support
- Funding application support for respite care
- Referrals to other services and supports
Intensive Services Coordination is not a first entry point to the service system. Referrals typically come from agencies that are presently providing a service to the family. Families can also self-refer if they feel they have exhausted their support options, and continue to feel stress.
The Intensive Service Coordinator works in collaboration with the Coordinated Service Planning program from MaMouPimoTayTaa – Together We Walk at Mushkegowuk Council.
Referral forms can be obtained by contacting the Intensive Services Coordination Case Manager using the contact information on this page.
