SST Referral Process Flow Chart (pdf)

  1. Provider agency or family reaches out to PAS/ISC for assistance with a person with a developmental disability in a medical or behavioral situation that challenges their ability to live and thrive in the community.
  2. PAS/ISC identifies that a family or provider agency needs assistance with a person with a developmental disability in a medical or behavioral situation that challenges their ability to live and thrive in the community.
  3. DDD Network or BTS staff identifies that a family or provider agency needs assistance with a person with a developmental disability in a medical or behavioral situation that challenges their ability to live and thrive in the community.
  4. PAS/ISC possible interventions: do their own review, perhaps holds a staffing, link to other community services such as community mental health or a behavior analyst, collects information for additional staffing request, refers the person to another provider, completes a request for SODC TA or CART.
  5. If the above possible interventions are not adequate, PAS/ISC reaches out to DD Network or BTS staff for the following possible options:
    1. schedule a CART 
    2. arrange a SODC TA 
    3. process additional staffing funding request
    4. refer to SST

      Note: CART is NOT required prior to referral to SST

  6. DDD staff (Network and BTS) collectively decide what additional support will be offered and if a referral to SST is made. The decision is based on a prioritization of individuals' needs and the capacity of the SSTs.
  7. If SST is chosen, a referral is made to SST by DD Network staff or BTS staff -- AFTER the Provider agency and PAS/ISC are notified that a referral will be made.
