Seeking answers on how to help our kids

Seeking answers on how to help our kids

Supporting our kids with mental health or addiction challenges can be a hard and painful road, and our search for treatment can feel like a dead end. In a new weekly drop-in discussion hour,  families can now consult with OHA Child and Family Behavioral Health representatives. Parents and family members can present their questions and concerns about services for children and young people who experience mental health or addiction concerns. It is also an opportunity for a discussion about suggestions for OHA to support youth, young adults and their families getting the right service at the right time for the duration needed. The calls are  hosted by the Director of Child and Family Behavioral Health, Chelsea Holcomb, and the Family Partnership Specialist, Frances Purdy. Representatives from Reach Out Oregon are also there to follow-up with specific immediate concerns.

A ‘Next Step’ to Consider With IEP Disagreements

A ‘Next Step’ to Consider With IEP Disagreements

In the best of times, a child’s IEP runs into a hurdle or two along the way. If attempts to work with the school or school district have not succeeded, parents can file a complaint with the state. Even with state offices physically closed because of COVID-19, parents still have that recourse. The Oregon Department of Education lays out all the details here.. For those of us left a bit confused by government “official-speak,” help is available from organizations such as FACT Oregon and Disability Rights Oregon. Parents can find support by calling FACT Oregon’s  phoneline or emailing. Along with guidance and details on IEPs and disabilities, Disability Rights Oregon’s website includes sample letters to start the complaint process.
