Bring flyers and information about your upcoming programs and events - A table will be provided for attendees to leave or gather information.
The March 2019 COP session will focus on services in our community for individuals with disability diagnoses. Participants will leave with a basic understanding of the scope of services available in the community and an understanding of populations served by, and services available at several area agencies that provide services and accommodations for community members with disabilities.
After the session, participants should be able to answer:
1. What services are available in Rockford?
2. How many people use those services?
3. What other resources are available for people with disability needs, and those who support them?
4. What are the qualifications for various services?
Following the training there will be an informative Q&A session.
The information provided at these COP sessions will be useful and relevant to all case managers, even if your primary client base does not utilize the sub-sector services which are the focus of the day.
