Join our Family
My Day Counts / Orange County Adult Achievement Center works with people who are referred to us through the Regional Center system and the State Department of Rehabilitation. The client, family member, Regional Center Service Coordinator, or Department of Rehabilitation Counselor contacts our Intake Coordinator, Bob Tiezzi, to begin the referral process. Our Intake Coordinator will call or email you back and ask questions to determine how to meet your needs.
The function of the Intake Coordinator is to meet and assess those individuals interested in My Day Counts services as well as to explore a potential applicant’s vocational or day program aspirations. When doing an assessment, the Intake Coordinator looks at a potential applicant’s day program preferences, clinical diagnosis, functional abilities/challenges, safety concerns or special needs of any kind, medical issues and former program experience - any information that can be gathered to make the placement as positive and beneficial as possible.
The Intake Coordinator will then contact the Manager of the Program you are interested in to let them know there is a referral in process.
If a referral packet has not been sent by the Regional Center Service Coordinator, the Intake Coordinator will request the following documents:
● Current Individual Program Plan
● Individual Education Plan (if applicable)
● Client Development and Evaluation Report (CDER)
● Psychological and/or Behavior Evaluation
● Consumer Profile
● Medical Information
● Living Options Assessment
● Any other applicable Assessment that helps in determining your needs.
The Intake Coordinator will contact the client to set up a tour of the program selected by the consumer. The Intake Coordinator will confirm your tour date and time with the Program Manager. After the tour, the Program Manager determines the feasibility of serving the client. Once the referral is accepted, services will begin after My Day Counts / OCAAC has received a Purchase of Services (POS) from the Regional Center or authorization from the Department of Rehabilitation and confirms transportation.
The Intake Coordinator sees the enrollment process through until the new client begins attending the chosen Program.
