Although Orlando has been occupying my mind most of this week, I have managed to start the wheels in motion to get more services for the girls. I finally located an elusive SPOA form. SPOA stands for single point of access, and is the golden key to accessing mental health services beyond what private insurance will cover. Hope's therapist says she will qualify for intensive case management. This will include respite, community access aides, and crisis management.
I finally heard from the medicaid waiver people for GB. They sent 12 (double sided) pages to be filled out and it has to be returned before March 9th. School was closed yesterday and today, then comes Orlando. I will get the forms done next Tuesday.
The added support is necessary.
