Communication and Meetings Structure

Information is currently disseminated through the SCO’s as well as via reports given to the local IU Taskforce, Transition Council, and Employment Coalition. We are looking to develop other mediums to distribute information.


Goals, next steps or actions plans

Revise front door procedures.  Engage in community resource mapping. Create a softer hand off between intake and SCO.  Develop a strategy to deliver pertinent ODP and collaborative information to consumers and their families.  Increase community presence via participation in more community outreach events.
