Supporting Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs
Roadmap to Assistance
Where to turn? What to do? A newly diagnosed disability can be overwhelming. DEFV can help you identify the first steps in finding the supports and services you and your family members may need.
Who can help?
You are not alone. Our network of support systems can help find services you may qualify for, connect you with others who experienced similar situations, provide emotional support, advice, and more.
What are my next steps?
Help is a phone call or email away. Contact DEFV to take the next step. We will help you navigate through the maze of services and supports, establish priorities, and focus on finding those supports and services you need most.
Where can I learn more?
Being equipped with the right questions to ask and receiving explanations you need lead to positive results. DEFV is prepared to help every step of the way with links to medical, financial, assistive technology, legal, education, caregiving, and advocacy and more!
