Hello and welcome to the blog for Disability Services & Advocacy, LLC. (DS&A). We are a support coordination agency in New Jersey that is dedicated to empowering people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We work together with the individual and their family as a team. Our focus is to improve the lives of people with disabilities by assisting them in navigating the social service system and securing services through the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and other agencies that support people with disabilities. Our internal team brings together a DS&A Support Coordinator (SC), SC Manager and Supervisor to support every participant and their family. This also includes working as a team with the individual’s circle of support and the organizations that support them.
Since our establishment in 2003, our agency has provided case management services through the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilites. Since 2013 we have provided Support Coordination services in DDD’s new fee for service system. Our team has assisted people with disabilities with the services they need to pursue happy and productive lives. By promoting the values of independence, community integration, and self-advocacy, we contribute to the construction of a strong and inclusive society.
On this blog, you will find the latest news and updates about DDD and our support coordination agency. Additionally, you may also find educational articles about what we do--which may include support coordination certification, training opportunities, and similar topics.
