Support Administration

Using a person-centered approach, support administrators (SA) assist individuals and their families to identify and acquire the appropriate services and support they choose for themselves within the diverse resources available to them, including community-based services and supports. As a support administrator works with an individual or family, he or she can:

  • identify issues and concerns of the individual and his or her family;
  • identify desired outcomes that are important to the individual and his or her family;
  • identify resources, which an individual may need, in a simple and timely fashion;
  • identify individual and family supports and strengths;
  • provide information;
  • assist the individual and family in determining and directing the supports and dollars needed to reach their specific outcomes;
  • assist the community in learning more about the unique capabilities of individuals with DD;
  • assist communities to develop the capacity to support people with DD.
