Case Management is the entry point into the CCBDSN service delivery system for people with developmental disabilities. Case Managers work with individuals and/or their families and loved ones to identify needs. Once the need is identified and evaluated, it is vital to develop a comprehensive plan of service to meet those needs.
CCBDSN services are coordinated with those of other agencies, such as local school systems, health and social service agencies, community mental health centers and vocational-technical work programs.
CCBDSN does not discriminate in the delivery of provided services. It provides services for four core categories of person in need:
- People with Intellectual Disability.
- People with Autism.
- Survivors of Head & Spinal Cord Injuries
- Other Related Disabilities.
Our Services are divided into 3 broad areas:
It is our intent that the person with the disability be the focal point of services that are person-centered, a philosophy that encourages participants and/or family members to choose the support and services they need such as attendant care, information about community resources, educational materials, emergency and outreach services and other individual and family-centered services including respite care, homemaker services, and personal assistance for essential activities of daily living.
What Intake Procedures are required? The first step is calling 800-289-7012 which is the referral number established by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.
Intake Requirements: Medical History, School Records, at a minimum.
Client Eligibility Information: Persons seeking services from CCBDSN must be able to prove, via professional Medical/Psychological diagnoses and evaluations, that they have intellectual disability, autism, or other related disability such as from the effects of a head or spinal cord injury.
Intellectual Disability is defined as having an IQ of 70 or below and social/adaptive behavior test scores. Related disabilities are severe/chronic disabilities that require treatment of services similar to those provided to people with intellectual disability. Other lifelong disabilities include autism or head and spinal cord injuries.
