Valley HealthCare Services provides services to the developmentally disabled as defined by the federal government. They can suffer from mental retardation or another debilitating mental or physical disability manifested before age 22 that is likely to continue indefinitely. This disability must interfere with three or more major life areas, such as self-care, language and mobility, describes the company's website.

Valley HealthCare System's Service Coordination department coordinates activities, services, instruction and assistance for people with developmental disabilities under a Title XIX waiver, continues the company's website. These services are goal-oriented and client-centered, and the client can make choices regarding his involvement in his community and his future life plans.
