Many services and supports are available to families that include a child or children with developmental disabilities and special health care needs. This presentation will review publicly funded services and supports that your family can utilize, regardless of income. We’ll review eligibility criteria, application processes, and points of contact for programs through the Department of Developmental Services, MassHealth, the Department of Public Health, and more. The information provided will be relevant to families with children of all ages, from immediately after diagnosis up through age 22.

Presented by:

Sophia Johansson serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors for Massachusetts Organizing for Change and works directly with families to develop their leadership skills in her role as Northeast Regional Coordinator. She is both a child and parent to an individual with disabilities and is passionate about empowering families to navigate the system while also “imagining better” for their loved ones.

Financial assistance is available.  Contact Kerry Mahoney@arcmass.org

The Arc of Massachusetts

Through advocacy, education, and outreach, The Arc of Massachusetts is giving individuals with disabilities and their families a powerful voice. We bring their struggles to light by sharing their stories in the State House, in the Capitol, in the community, in the court room, and in the classroom to help elected leaders, public officials, and citizens understand their needs.

You can help us remain at the forefront of the struggle to build better lives for all members of the community. Can we count on you to make our work possible with a donation before the end of our fiscal year on June 30?
