November 2023 Coffee Talk: Autism Care – dedicated to the medical home philosophy
November 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-5
Learn about a unique partnership between our New Jersey P2P Alliance Member, SPAN, and the medical community that provides more resources, staffing and support for parents. Family organizations bring together lived experience, the stories of many diverse families of children with disabilities and special healthcare needs, knowledge and skills about reaching, supporting and engaging families at all levels, and improving systems. But we are always under-resourced!
How can we build our own capacity through partnering with professional associations, healthcare providers and systems, and others?
Learn about how SPAN collaborates with multiple partners, including the Autism Medical Home initiative at Meridian Health/Hackensack University Hospital, to secure more resources to support and empower families.
With partners’ funding, we are able to hire additional Family Resource Specialists (FRSs) that are housed in the community where families are. The FRSs are integrated into the workflow of the practices/partner organizations. Our partnership strengthens their ability to provide care to children and youth with autism and their families consistent with the components of the “medical home,” i.e., care that is accessible, compassionate, continuous, coordinated, culturally sensitive, and patient- and family-centered, from early childhood through transition to adult systems of care.
