Our first meeting (currently via Zoom) will be where we collect specific information about your child and family. Our first objective is to move your family out of crisis or immediate concern, with a comprehensive plan and resources. Together, we develop an Action Plan that is realistic and achievable. You will also receive a Parent Empowerment Kit (will be delivered or mailed to your home.
Our consultation takes about 2 hours and is typically held with parents only.
After you receive your Action Plan, you have the choice to continue services with your Navigator or self advocate from the recommendations given.
Most families continue working with their Navigator and utilize about 2-3 Hours per month initially with a gradual reduction to 1 hour monthly check-in and then every few months another check in to work on future planning.
We attend IEP/School Related Meetings with you and continue support until the child transitions into adult services.
