‘Illinois Pediatrician’ Highlights DSCC’s Care Coordination
Newsletter for the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics promotes DSCC’s efforts to help families.
The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) is honored to be included in the latest edition of “Illinois Pediatrician.”
“Illinois Pediatrician” is the print and electronic newsletter for the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP). The winter 2019 edition features an article by Molly Hofmann, DSCC’s Associate Director of Care Coordination.
The article explains how our staff uses a comprehensive assessment to help our care coordination teams develop a person-centered plan for each of our families.
The person-centered plan is guided by the participant and family’s needs, wants, dreams and desires. It includes their desired outcomes/goals, strengths and needs. It also outlines the steps to achieve these goals and the barriers and risk factors with plans to minimize them.

The newsletter also includes great articles about the 14th annual Illinois Statewide Transition Conference. DSCC is one of the conference’s co-sponsors.
A big thank you to ICAAP for sharing our efforts to drive positive change in the lives of our participants and families!
