The Case Management Team: Building Community Connections.
This guidebook presents ideas about how families and case managers can use case management to increase the integration of people with developmental disabilities into their communities, and how public officials and advocates can promote the trend toward community integration. The guide advocates implementation of the integration philosophy, which holds that all people, regardless of the severity of their disabilities, belong in the community, and proposes that case management can translate this belief into practice. Chapter titles include: "'Mary Is a Person and My Sister': New Insights about People with Developmental Disabilities"; "Services for an Integrated Society"; "Case Management: A New Kind of Help"; "A Process for Building Community Connections"; "Monitoring, Evaluation and Advocating"; "The Case Management Team--A Partnership"; "Exploring New Roles"; "Using Regular Community Resources"; and "Achieving an Integrated Society." Appendices contain quality-of-life indicators, a regional service system plan, a statement in support of families, an options policy on quality of life, Minnesota case management appeal procedures, a 13-item bibliography on choice-making, an integration test for organizations serving people with developmental disabilities, and related materials.
