What does it take to create and implement an effective, family-centered plan of care for a child with special health care needs? Our expert speakers will discuss their approaches to the process of care planning in two very different settings—Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a small private practice in Vermont. Join us!
On September 21, ABC will premiere its new sitcom, Speechless, about a family with a child who has special needs. The show stars Micah Fowler, a young actor who in real life and in the show has cerebral palsy, and Minnie Driver, who plays the mother of Fowler’s character, JJ. We talked to Melvin Mar, one of the show’s executive producers, to get a behind-the-scenes look at Speechless.
We address questions asked during and prior to the July 12 pre-application webinar for the Request for Proposals: Developing Goals and Strategies to Improve the Care of Children with Chronic and Complex Health Conditions.
