46. The Many Flavors of Medicaid Waivers 301 - Children's Waivers & Independent Facilitation

When you have a child with a developmental or intellectual disability your life gets complex.  Often it becomes overwhelming.  Navigating a path to find the right resources is essential.  Today's episode is about two Medicaid Waivers that provide valuable supports, The Michigan Waiver for Children and  the Michigan Waiver for Children with Serious Emotional Disorders (SED).  We also cover the basics of Michigan's Children's Special Health Care program.  If you don't live in Michigan, your home state will have very similar programs available.  We also will discuss the value of using an Independent Facilitator for Person Centered Planning.  Everything starts with a good plan, and the trained professionals who facilitate the person centered planning process guides that will help you make the most of the resources available for your child to enjoy a full life to the greatest extent possible!  I hope you enjoy our show!  Please reach out to us with your comments, questions and suggestions by emailing us at
