Adult Autism Waiver Supports Coordination Organization

“Person + Action = Person Centered Planning”: CRI is a Supports Coordination Organization (SCO) for the Bureau of Supports for Autism and Special Populations (BSASP) under the direction of Office of Developmental Programs.

All the Supports Coordinators at CRI have been trained to embrace the Foundation of LifeCourse Framework which believes all people have the right to live, love, work, plan and pursue their dreams and aspirations in the community.

The LifeCourse Framework offers flexible, dynamic tools that can assist anyone in creating a vision of an everyday life. The Framework assists a person in discovering supports for the experiences, relationships, and community opportunities which will help make their vision a reality. These tools become a living document in an individual portfolio format that can guide conversations and strategies across a lifespan.
