This toolkit, developed as an accompanying document to the Linking and Aligning Care Coordination Plan, is primarily intended for care coordinators and providers of services who are beginning to build, or want to evaluate their capacity to provide care coordination. Thus, the toolkit is designed to be used as a comprehensive resource guide when working directly with families in a variety of settings across Colorado. However, families/consumers can use this toolkit as a guide for developing expectations about their care and as an advocacy tool when interacting with their care coordinators or health care providers. Systems-level agencies can also use this toolkit as a document to make policy and programmatic decisions based on the included recommendations. Toolkit | Plan

Just Being Kids: Supports And Services For Infants And Toddlers And Their Families In Everyday Routines, Activities, And Places (50 minute Video and Facilitator's Guide, 2001)
Just Being Kids illustrates how supports and services for infants and toddlers with special needs can be provided in the context of families' everyday routines, activities, and places (also known as "natural environments").

Just Being Kids was developed for use in both pre-service and in-service training programs with therapists, early childhood specialists, and service coordinators. The video is also useful for showing families examples of this approach to early intervention supports and services. The 55-page companion Facilitator's Guide offers trainers, educators, and team leaders background information on the stories along with handouts, an extensive bibliography, and suggestions for leading discussion groups and other training activities to enhance participants' learning.
