Multidisciplinary Case Coordination

Sharing expertise to reach the best outcomes for children.

Children and families have the best outcomes when professionals reduce duplication and work together.

The Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center’s professionals work with community agency partners involved in a particular case — including medical, legal, law enforcement, educators, social services, guardians ad litem, and mental health — to take appropriate action as quickly as possible. Case coordination occurs through weekly multidisciplinary team (MDT) staffings, where professionals give input into the assessment of needs and the development of safety and treatment plans. Recommendations and updates regarding protection, case management, prosecution and needed services are discussed by the staffing team and the progress of each case is monitored through the MDT process.
