Coordinated Service Delivery is an approach to ensure that children, youth and families have access to supports they need to be successful at school and in the community. It is a partnership among school authorities to promote recruitment and retention of specialized staff. It also allows for efficiencies in service delivery across the Northwest.
These jurisdiction partners work together on a regional basis to meet the identified needs of children and youth.
The approach of the multi-disciplinary team is intended to better meet the needs of:
children or youth with identified challenges which affect their success in an educational setting
child and youth who are registered with Alberta Education in Early Childhood Services (ECS) to Grade 12 in one of the 6 participating jurisdictions
- children and youth (from birth to age 20) with a low incidence disability including:
– Blind or Visually Impaired (BVI)
– Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH)
– Deafblind (DB)
– Complex Communication Needs (CNN)
school staff, families and service providers who need cross-sector training or skill development in relation to collaboratively supporting children and youth in school and the community.
