Imagine Different…Achieve Different Coalition

Please join us to:
Imagine Different…Imagine Lifesharing for Children with ID/DD and Complex Medical Needs

There are approximately 240 children with medical needs currently living in pediatric care facilities who are missing the vibrancy and joy of family life. For those children who may not be able to return home, their prioritization for discharge provides an exciting challenge to the Lifesharing community: Are you ready to expand your expertise in supporting family life for individuals with disabilities to ensure that children, too, enjoy Everyday Lives? This webinar, presented by Rachel Mann, Esq. and Nancy Rosenau, Ph.D. of the Imagine Different Coalition, will unravel much of the mystery surrounding who these children are and what they need. Critical topic areas include:
• Description of children needing LifeSharing (living in or at risk of admission to facilities)
and their families
• Recruitment/assessment and preparation of potential Lifesharing families
• Understanding of and coordination with outside resources that support children
• Matching children and recruited Lifesharing families and supporting that relationship
• Facility discharge transition planning
• Safeguards (e.g., monitoring, back-up, access to expertise)
