A free Care Coordination training for parents with special needs children is being offered by the Kansas - Special Health Care Needs Program. Parents will learn how to identify a medical home, plan for transitions, cope with stress, locate support systems, learn advocacy skills, organize and find resources, navigate health care and insurance systems, and increase communication and coordination between multiple providers.
"This is a fun and interactive training where families can learn together and support each as they strive to navigate the complex systems of care available to their children." Kayzy Bigler, Co-facilitator and Parent of a child with Special Health Care Needs
