Children learn more during the first years of their life than at any other time. As a result, early detection and intervention are critical. TECH provides Service Coordination through Targeted Case Management (TCM) and becomes your partner in the journey towards receiving services.
TECH Service Coordinators pride themselves in becoming a partner and listening ear for the families we are honored to serve. Raising a child with a disability offers many challenges, although most of our parents make it look easy. It never hurts to have someone in your corner, standing shoulder to shoulder with you during difficult times. Each family is unique in its diversity and dynamics. TECH Service Coordinators are sensitive to all people and their uniqueness. They make themselves available and build strong and lasting relationships that can carry a family well into adulthood and throughout their lives. Service Coordinators recognize the uniqueness in each family and their journey making participants in our services a priority.
Help Navigating Complex Service Systems
In the world of disabilities, every system is complex and intertwined in some way. While it is true, some families do not have a need for Medicaid, they DO need the determination to qualify for the services offered by the state. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Mental Health, Foster Care, medical care, dental, and a multitude of other services systems can be better navigated if you have someone to help you shoulder that journey.
Help Accessing Specialty Services and Community Resources
TECH Service Coordinators are extremely well-versed in Reno County community resources that a family may need to access. We can also assist with accessing services outside of our own county to meet a person’s unique needs. All you need to do is let us know what your need is and we work hard to find a way to get you the help you need.
Your Partner in the School System
A TECH Service Coordinator can assist both the family and school with resources that can help your child who might be experiencing challenges in their school setting. Service Coordinators can also be a partner during the Individual Education Plan (IEP) meeting to help all parties involved navigate the child’s unique needs and potential accommodations.
