Support Coordination Agency in New Jersey
Welcome to our Website!
Disability Services &Advocacy, LLC (DS&A) is a dynamic state-wide support coordination agency in NJ, serving all counties and approved by the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). We are one of the largest Support Coordination agencies in NJ, serving over 1,000 consumers. We achieved this growth through positive feedback for our Support Coordinator (SC) training, professionalism and team approach from consumers, families, providers and DDD representatives.
We appreciate your interest in our agency, and our work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. To help with understanding the disability system in NJ, we have provided our website visitors with a wealth of information.
Through sharing this knowledge, we hope to help:
- Empower You with the Understanding & Navigation of the NJ Disability System
- Advise You on the services offered to People with Developmental Disabilities in NJ
- Encourage You to Proactively Participate in the Application & Person-Centered Planning Processes
- Achieve Your Goals by Promoting Your Personal Choices & Engagement in Self-Advocacy
At DS&A we believe in helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities reach for the stars! Our disability support agency was among the first to be released by DDD to approve our own Individualized Service Plans. While our home office is in South River, NJ our SC's work out of their homes, learn the local providers and serve consumers in their local community. Our support coordinators receive extensive initial training and monthly training webinars to keep abreast of the latest DDD and DS&A policies and procedures. Our size enables us to provide our SC's extensive human resource, IT and managerial support. Each support coordinator works with a regional Support Manager and Supervisor to provide daily support, advice, on-time plan approval and back-up. This team approach is one of the foundations of our success. Because of this support, our SC's have the knowledge to act as consultants in the NJ disability system, presenting consumers and their families with information to maximize the options available to them and improving the quality of their lives through a team effort. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the services we offer and rewarding work that we do.
