Comment on Single Point of Entry by Julie Bloomingdale <julie.bloomingdale@ncmail.net>

The State of North Carolina Developmental Disabilities Services Section has had a Single Portal of Entry and Exit process since 1994. It is in compliance with the original Single Portal of Entry and Exit Law and subsequent rules. Each of the 39 area programs wrote a Single Portal of Entry/Exit Plan that complied with rule.

The process is to assist individuals and families through the service delivery system in order that they get what they need and prefer - no more no less. The rules mandate person centered planning as the foundation for service delivery. The process utilizes an interagency process for review.

The mandate only covers day/night and 24 hour services which are basically day and residential services. Periodic services are not required to come through interagency review. For allocation and planning purposes, Area Programs track periodic services on a software tracking system provided by the State.


The Governor's Task Force on Traumatic Brain Injury is supported by grant number 1 H21MC00043-01 from the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
