On January 15, the Parent Group welcomed Sheila Carter, Executive Director of Cam and Madi’s Promise, Incorporated (C.A.M.P.).
C.A.M.P. is a grassroots organization that strives to ensure that every family of a child with special needs is successful in securing the medical and therapeutic services their children often require through the Katie Beckett and NOW/COMP waivers.
During the workshop, parents learned more about the services offered through C.A.M.P. as well as the waivers that are available specifically for their families. If you have any questions or would like additional assistance specific to Katie Beckett and NOW/COMP waivers, please feel free to contact Jazmine McMullen, Children and Youth Services Support Coordinator at email@example.com
The next Parent Group will be held on February 19 (11:30 am to 12:30 pm) and will feature Dr. Vidya Phoenix who is a Pediatric Ophthalmologist at Thomas Eye Group. This will be a great opportunity for parents to network with other families while learning more about their child’s vision diagnosis. Please RSVP for the February 19 Parent Group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
before February 17.
On Monday, January 27, Jazmine McMullen, Children and Youth Services Support Coordinator for Center of the Visually Impaired, participated in GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students
annual Strolling Thunder Event. During this event babies and parents from around Georgia were able to meet their elected officials during a day at the Capitol. Parents received advocacy training and participated in roundtable discussions so families could tell their stories about the joys and challenges of raising infants and toddlers in Georgia.
