update on state services.

Mar 19, 2009

i wanted to give a quick update on what is going on with the early intervention services in our state. the day before claire’s therapies were to be cut, a judge issued an injunction and stopped the state from ending services to babies! our DDD coordinator says that therapies will continue until they hear otherwise. can i get an AMEN?! in the meantime, we are applying for federal long term care funding for claire since those programs are more protected than the state programs. it is difficult for babies to qualify but we are hopeful that with claire’s diagnosis, she will be accepted. so anyway, a big hooray for the judge who helped all the families and babies who benefit from early intervention therapies! i am so happy to see evidence of people in power who really have a heart for the citizens they serve and do what is right! i’ll try to keep you all updated as this situation progresses and rally the troops if needed! 🙂

    I know this is a year old but do you know if the injunction was upheld or overturned. Just going over the wonderful things the Governor has done since she took over. Thanks, Tom
