Working together with families, Liberty POST Ongoing Service Coordinators (OSCs) use their knowledge and access to community resources and service delivery systems to advocate for children diagnosed with language and motor delays, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, and deafness.
Service Coordinators partner with parents in identifying and implementing family goals and assist families in obtaining evaluations and therapeutic services that support and nurture a child’s development.
