Intensive Service Coordination for Simcoe County


Intensive Service Coordination for Simcoe County provides information, consultation and community case conference facilitation for children/ youth (0-19 years) and their families who require support from health, social and/or educational services because of severe emotional, intellectual, developmental and/or physical needs, and who reside within Simcoe County. There must be two or more diagnosed special needs, requiring an integrated service approach that crosses sectors.  

A referral can be initiated:

-  When all existing Simcoe County supports and services have been exhausted and needs remain unmet

-  When the complexity of the service needs for the child/youth are beyond the capacity of the local service system and family to address

-  When there are identified gaps in an integrated service plan and is not available in Simcoe County

-  When the service delivery system is at an impasse and requires a creative service plan or a case resolution function for extraordinary needs.  

This is when Intensive Service Coordination provides support to children/youth and their families by:

1.  Information sharing:  Providing information which enables families and service providers to make informed decisions

2. Consultation services:  Encourage linkages with our community resources, the coordinator works closely with the community case manager

3. Case Conference Facilitation:  Coordinating services, gathering all relevant information to complete a service plan assessment based on the child's strengths and needs and service involvement history.  An integrated service plan for each child is developed, incorporating the inter-agency service provision and roles.  This could include accessing out of area resources as needed and available.
