Series: Requesting a Shared Plan of Care & Assembling a Care Notebook Learn more about the benefits of a Shared Plan of Care, which is a summary of your child’s medical and non-medical information. We will also walk through how to assemble a Care Notebook to keep your child’s information organized. 

October 22: What’s After High School? A broad overview of the transition to adult life for youth with disabilities and special health care needs and includes the following topics: envisioning a youth’s future; post-secondary concerns; long-term supports; transitioning to adult health care; legal considerations; and supported decision making. Presented by our CYSHCN Network Partners- Family Voices of Wisconsin.

October 29: C.A.R.E. Series Care Mapping & Local Resources A hands-on opportunity to create a care map that illustrates your family’s strengths. It communicates both the big picture and the small details of all of the resources needed to support your child and family. We will wrap up the session by tying things missing in your family’s Care Map to what is available in your local area. A great way to connect with other families.
