Including All Kids: Discussion with Healthcare Providers
May 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Many of the challenges families face when accessing healthcare for their children with developmental disabilities is a lack of access to quality care. Sometimes, specialty care is only found states away. Or, local health care providers don’t take your insurance or are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Join us for a discussion on steps providers are taking to improve accessibility and quality of care for kids. We’ll also discuss ways our state can reform policy to improve care. Bring your questions and ideas.
