Feelings of frustration, questions of why, stresses of deciding what steps to take next are all normal for parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Find reassurance that you're not alone. Rainbows uses a family-centered approach encouraging each family to make their own choices and letting the case manager advocate and coordinate the services to make the family's wishes a reality. As a long-time recognized leader in Kansas, Rainbows' case managers help families overcome barriers. They match the needs of each child and family with available community resources and access to those services. They add a special touch by meeting with other persons involved in the child's life including teachers, therapists and care providers to make certain every aspect is working in the child's best interest.
Rainbows' case managers help families identify:
- What they need for their child
- What resources are available
- How to access those services and resources
- How to coordinate education, purchased services and natural supports
Funding for Intellectual Disability/Developmental Disability (ID/DD) Services may include:
- Respite care
- On-going care
