Presented by Michelle Hill, RAMP Team Leader & Diane Bouffard, CPSP, Regional Parent Support Coordinator
Getting services for a child with behavioral health needs can be overwhelming. “Team Up for Your Child” is a step-by-step guide designed to help families navigate confusing service systems and work smarter with doctors, schools, agencies and insurers. When a child has serious behavioral health issues, you suddenly have a team of professionals in your life who provide a variety of services. This team could include doctors, therapists, health workers and teachers but remember that the coach of this team is you – the parent. You are the only one who takes care of the whole child. Learn how to identify your child’s strengths and needs, make sense of reports and evaluations, understand your child’s treatment plan, track your child’s progress and translate the Individualized Education Program. Note: Lunch will be provided. Space is limited to 18 people, so you must pre-register for this workshop.
