Specialist Support Coordination is delivered utilising an expert or specialist approach, necessitated by specific high complex needs or high level risks in a participant’s situation. Specialist Support Coordination is generally delivered in a time limited, outcomes focused manner and by an appropriately qualified and experienced practitioner to meet the individual needs of the participant’s circumstances such as a Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, Social Worker, or Mental Health Nurse. Specialist Support Coordination will address highly complex barriers impacting on the ability to implement their plan.
Specialist Support Coordination should reduce complexity in the participant’s support environment in the context of broader systems of support, whilst also assisting the participant to connect with NDIS supports, negotiate solutions with multiple stakeholders and build capacity and resilience. Specialist Support Coordination may also involve assisting in resolving points of crisis for participants, and ensuring a consistent delivery of service during crisis situations. The intended outcome of specialist support coordination is that complexities and barriers affecting a participant’s capacity and ability to implement their plan is reduced, and may be replaced by support coordination in subsequent plans. Specialist Support Coordination may also involve development of an intervention plan which will be put in place by disability support workers.
Your Specialist Support Coordination will be delivered by a Registered Psychologist, Tracy Clarke or Occupational Therapist, Todd Clarke.
