Home Based Resources for Children Available in New York StateJanuary 4th, 2012
Children and families who are part of communities at risk can access highly sought-after services to make a difference in their child’s life. As part of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program that is authorized by the Affordable Care Act, New Yorkers can connect with the home-based visiting program to have their needs assessed. Social workers, nurses, and other professionals will meet with families to see what resources are available to improve their health care, nutrition education, and developmental services.
Also included are early education programs and parenting education. Interested families can contact the New York State Department of Health, Family and Community Health division for more information. New York’s programs are in coordination with federal efforts to improve services for families and children.
An experienced special needs attorney can also assist a family with a child with special needs. From educational resources to government benefits and health care needs, a New York special needs attorney can help improve a child and family’s wellbeing. They can inform a family of all their options and plan a path for a better future.
