Does coordinating your family’s lives and needs feel overwhelming and sometimes impossible?  Do you have children with special needs or health care needs?  Come to this training to meet other families doing what you do, expand your network of family advisors who have been there and learn in a fun, safe environment about services available for your child or ANY child.  This is a fund day of learning, networking and partnering around Care Coordination.  What is Care Coordination?  It’s a needs-driven, team-based process that values YOU as essential partners.  Through this process, you will learn skills to help you enhance your family caregiving while maximizing your child’s potential.  Topics you will learn about are the Medical home, organization, finding resources, navigating health care and insurance systems, best ways to communicate and coordinate with all professionals, how to plan for future transitions effectively, EDN, coping with stress and finding support when needed and effective advocacy skills.

This training is open to any parent or guardian of a child (birth-18).  Priority will be given to families of infants and toddlers in EDN and/or with genetic disorders.  Parents MUST pre-register to attend.  A $75 stipend will be provided to parents who pre-register and attend the entire day.
