Service Coordination

Service Coordination is the foundation for all services delivered or coordinated by Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs.  Everyone, over the age of 3, is assigned a Service Coordinator.  Children 0-3 are served through our Early Intervention program. 

For specific eligibility requirements please visit the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs state website:  South Carolina DDSN (www.state.sc.us/ddsn/)

To begin the eligibility process you must call the referral number that best meets your needs:

  • Children 0-3:  (843) 915-8846

  • Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities or Autism:  (800) 289-7012

  • Individuals with Head or Spinal Cord Injuries:  (866) 867-3864

Please note:  These numbers will be a recording and someone will call you back. 

You will be given a choice of Service Coordination providers with Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs Board being one of them.  Once you have selected your provider, a Service Coordinator will be assigned, and the eligibility process will begin. 

Making the eligibility process go more easily

In preparation for your initial visit with your Service Coordinator, it would be helpful if you had the following information on hand. (Note: Not all items will be applicable for everyone). If you do not have access to a copier, we can copy these documents in our office and return the originals to you.

  • All psychological evaluations

  • School records (IEP)

  • Other agency reports (Mental Health, previous programs attended)

  • Medical reports

  • Therapy reports (Speech, OT, PT)

  • Copy of Birth Certificate

  • Copy of Social Security Card

  • Names, complete addresses and telephone number of past/present:

    • Doctors

    • Dentists

    • Schools attended

    • Other Special Needs programs.

Over the last several years, funding issues have caused major budget cuts throughout the state of South Carolina and Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs has not gone unaffected.  Unfortunately, once eligible for services, individuals are placed on extensive waiting lists. 

The Service Coordinator continues to play a key role in assisting the individual, however, funding is often an issue that blocks Service Coordinators from connecting individuals with all the services they need.
