Adult Service Coordination (ASC) provides assistance to individuals over the age of 21 with intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities. Services are also available to adults with disorders such as traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and other degenerative brain disorders.
The Adult Service Coordination team at MDS 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. We 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.
