Family Support and Medicaid Service Coordination
Families caring for a child with developmental delays are confronted with many challenges. They may struggle to access appropriate care and educational resources. KCSC provides preschool families, parents and caregivers with support, training and information on topics such as autism and the transition to kindergarten.
In Medicaid Service Coordination, children ages three through their early teen years and their families receive assistance in accessing, monitoring and coordinating services.
Social workers and Medicaid Service Coordinators also provide information, referrals and coordination of services in many areas, including:
- parent education
- child nutrition
- housing and health care
- access to legal and other social services in the community
- advocacy for appropriate resources and services
Prior approval from the NY State Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is necessary for Medicaid Service Coordination.
If you are a resident of Manhattan or the Bronx with prior approval from OPWDD are are interested in Medicaid Service Coordination for your child, you can contact us here.
