Powerful Parents meeting 9.26

A member of Family Voices Indiana attended the Powerful Parents meeting hosted by DDRS in Indy last night. The handouts included those previously shared in DDRS communications:

Individuals now have a choice of case management companies for the FS and CIH waivers. More companies may be added in the future: http://www.fvindiana.blogspot.com/2012/08/ddrs-announcement-regarding-case.html

Individuals on the CIH waiver will have transportation services available and the FS waiver has personal assistance added: http://www.fvindiana.blogspot.com/2012/08/ddrs-announcement-regarding.html

Changes will be made to a CIH waiver on their 2013 annual review date: http://www.fvindiana.blogspot.com/2012/08/ddrs-update-regarding-objective-based.html

And the following handouts regarding services, eligibility and facts about the new DD waiver system:

If you have questions, please contact your case manager, or feel free to contact us at Family Voices 317 944 8982  info@fvindiana.org

There will also be a public forum where individuals will have 3 mins to share their concerns with the DD commission:
Public Forum about changes to DD waiver system

The Commission will hear testimony from families and friends of individuals who 
are receiving services from the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services.
