The RPC delivers the following Developmental Disabilities Services through local Champaign County Developmental Disability Board (CCDDB) grant funding and federal Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funding.
The Developmental Disabilities Services team at the RPC provides conflict-free, person-centered case management to individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities within Champaign County whose I/DD direct care services are funded by the Champaign County Developmental Disability Board. Our team of Case Managers assists individuals with linkage to community resources based on individual preferences and needs, such as for job support, community day services, and community living supports. Case Managers work with individuals to develop person-centered plans and outcomes based on the person’s own expressed interests, needs, and wishes for his/her future, and provide ongoing monitoring of the implementation of the outcomes by service providers.
This program is available to individuals ages 18 and up that are dually diagnosed with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability and Mental Health diagnosis. The Dual Diagnosis Case Manager meets with the individual in their home or in the community and utilizes evidence-based approaches, such as motivational interviewing, to increase service engagement. The Case Manager works with the individual on development and achievement of desired outcomes. Our dual diagnosis case manager is knowledgeable of resources within both the mental health and developmental disability community and will work closely with providers across both settings to help the individual build the skills and access the services needed to be successful in reaching goals.
