Support Coordination

With offices located throughout the state, Easterseals Louisiana has become a community leader in helping families in need of assistance access and secure the services appropriate for a person's specific needs.

ESL’s Support Coordinators not only help people with disabilities locate services and assistance, but will play an active role in the coordination of services to ensure that each individual's needs are being met. The goals of support coordination are to foster independence and self-sufficiency, and ensure the participant’s health, safety, and well-being in the least restrictive environment. The ultimate goal is achieving and maintaining the participant’s personal outcomes. This is accomplished through the coordination of paid and common community services and other natural support.

ESL’s Support Coordination Services

Easterseals Louisiana provides the following Support Coordination Services. For more details about these different programs, please visit the LDH website. 

OCDD Waiver Services

OCDD (Office for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities) offers community-based services and supports for people who have disabilities through the Medicaid Home and Community-based Waiver programs. These waiver programs allow participants to have greater flexibility to choose where they want to live, and the waiver services and supports that best suit their needs, while still receiving Medicaid State Plan benefits. 


The Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) administers home and community based long-term care services through various waiver and state plan programs for individuals who are elderly or have disabilities, assisting them to remain in their homes and in the community. Our Support Coordinators support qualifying individuals in getting the help they need. 

Family Support Coordination (FSC)

The FSC role is to assist an eligible child and their family in receiving rights, procedural safeguards, and services authorized in EarlySteps. Learn more about EarlySteps, here
