Powerpoint presentation about Family Voices
Family Voices aims to achieve family-centered care for all children and youth with special health care needs and/or disabilities. Through this national network, Family Voices provides families tools to make informed decisions, advocates for improved public and private policies, builds partnerships among professionals and families, and serves
as a trusted resource on health care.
Children and youth with special health needs include all children who have, or are
at increased risk for, chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions and who also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally.
The Family Voices of Ohio Board is a well-informed, experienced group of parents fully committed to the needs and concerns of their families. The Board’s strength comes from the fact that they are all parents of children and adults who have special needs and are in close contact with other parents from the disability community. Members represent a wide variety of children , health conditions, families and communities from every region in Ohio. We include families who have children and adults with special health care needs, plus caregivers, professionals, and friends whose lives have been touched by these children. Family Voices is devoted to being a network of information and support to our fellow families.
