Service and Support Administration (SSA):

Service and Support Administrators coordinate individualized services and connect people with developmental disabilities to community resources. At least annually, an individual’s needs are assessed and a person-centered individual service plan (ISP) is developed, implemented and monitored.  

Additionally, the SSAs may:

  • Identify needs, concerns, and goals of individuals and/or families
  • Monitor the progress of the ISP to ensure services are appropriate and maintain health and safety
  • Provide options for service providers (personal care, employment supports, transportation, equipment, etc)
  • Assist with residential needs
  • Assist to Transition plans (ages 14-22) for moving from school into adulthood
  • Provide referrals and assistance in areas such as Social Security, guardianship, Medicaid, waiting lists, community resources, etc.
