Accessing the Children’s System of Care for the Supports Your Child Needs

December 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

RFSPC4-FamilyForum-Advocating-for-the-Supports-you-Need-Dec1.2021

Navigating the Children’s System of Care can be overwhelming and confusing. Join us to learn how Perform Care is your point of entry to the wraparound supports and services you, your child and family need. Families of children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) often don’t realize there is a separate application process to be completed after their initial contact with Perform Care. Once approved, families are presented with new array of acronyms for the available options. The goal of this forum is to empower families to understand the process of obtaining services, what services are available and who provides them.
