Using Medicaid Waivers to Finance Home and Community-based Services
September 21, 2010
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (Eastern)
In this webinar, presented by the National Wraparound Initiative, Constance Conklin (Mental Health Services to Children and Families, Department of Community Health) will focus on the use of Medicaid waivers, with a specific emphasis on 1915(c) waivers, to support wraparound implementation. Seven states are using 1915(c) waivers to serve Medicaid enrollees in the community instead of requiring hospital level of care, and eight states are using 1915(c) waivers for Medicaid enrollees rather than psychiatric residential treatment level of care. 1915(c) waivers are actually used in almost every state to serve at least some segments of Medicaid populations.

Strategies to Increase School Completion Rates for Students with or at Risk for Emotional/Behavioral Disorders
August 20, 2010
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM (Eastern)
Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders (EBD) continue to demonstrate the worst post-secondary outcomes among all groups of students, in part due to their large dropout rate.

First, the need for consistent pro-active environmental supports across a continuum will be discussed through School-wide Positive Behavior Supports.

Participants will be provided with promising ideas and directed to available resources to assist them in implementation.
Data Driven: Making Student Data Accessible and Meaningful to Families
August 10, 2010
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (Eastern)
The U.S. Department of Education has adopted using data for school improvement as a major education reform priority.

This third webinar, “Data Driven: Making Student and School Data Accessible and Meaningful to Families,” will look at practical examples of how districts and schools use data to engage families in their children's education. The webinar will introduce tools that help practitioners, districts, and schools to incorporate data into their own family engagement strategies.
