Join us: The Northern Regional Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) Center is looking for feedback from families. We want parents to let us know what is working and what is not. We also would appreciate suggestions on additional training and programs. Additionally, these meetings will be an avenue for staff to provide updates on projects that we are developing.
We are looking for:
- Parents/ primary caregivers of children with special health care needs and/or disabilities under age 22
- Live in the 15 counties that are a part of the Northern Regional Center services area.
- Are willing to provide feedback and suggestions on CYSHCN supports and services
We will hold these meetings twice a year on a weekday evening over Zoom or in-person. If in-person, we will hold 3 sessions in different parts of the region and dinner will be provided. Parents can receive a gas card for mileage reimbursement if needed.
