Navigating the Maze of Services and Resources.
You are invited to a free workshop for parents of children and youth with disabilities and special needs on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 6:30 PM at the Utah Parent Center. This workshop will be presented by Tina Persels from Utah Family Voices.
This will be an interactive session on health care and community supports for children and youth. The overall goal of this session is to help parents identify services that will benefit their children and families. Information presented is to help families navigate a system where they have knowledge about potential funding, supports and services they may be eligible for. Information about Medicaid, SSI, community organizations and agencies are examples of what will be covered.
