Care coordinators play a vital role in addressing developmental delays, working with families to ensure that children receive the support and services they need to reach their full potential.

A care coordinator is a professional who helps families navigate the complex world of developmental specialities, therapies, and both public & private services. They act as a liaison between families and service providers, helping to connect families with the right resources and support. Care coordinators are almost exclusively seen in early intervention, as they help families access the services and support their child needs to thrive.

Care coordinators in early intervention:

One of the primary ways that care coordinators help during the early intervention process is by guiding families through the evaluation and assessment process. When a child is suspected of having a developmental delay or disability, they will typically undergo a series of evaluations and assessments to determine the extent of their needs. This can be a daunting and overwhelming process for families, but care coordinators can provide support and guidance, explaining the process and answering any questions families may have.

Another critical role that care coordinators play during the early intervention process is connecting families with the right service providers. There are many different service providers involved in early intervention, including speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and more. Care coordinators work with families to identify the providers that best meet their child's needs and ensure that families can access those providers.

In addition to connecting families with service providers, care coordinators also provide ongoing support and guidance throughout the early intervention process. They are available to answer questions, address concerns, and ensure that families are receiving the services and support they need. Care coordinators also help families navigate any challenges that may arise during the early intervention process, advocating on their behalf and working to resolve any issues that may arise.

Coral Care Concierge

While care coordinators are commonplace within early intervention, they are typically not a part of the process for children over age 3 or in private services. At Coral Care, we believe that navigating the childhood services space should be simple and stress-free. That's why we have Coral Care Concierge, so anyone can have access to a care coordinator and get set on a path forward. This role involves identifying and addressing a child's needs early on to ensure they have the best possible outcomes as they grow and develop. Our Coral Care Concierges are accredited developmental specialists with experience helping families navigate childhood developmental services.

Book a consultation with one of our Coral Care Concierge providers, and you will have an opportunity to dig into your child's unique needs and receive a personalized action plan. Your Concierge will even check-in with you a month later to make sure you're on the right track.
