12 November 2 nd, DCF Task Force Meeting: APD / DCF / CBC Partnership Ongoing challenges: Opportunities for system development Getting DCF/CBC children APD services: Other than through crisis, new waiver enrollment from the waitlist in FY not likely and during FY is unknown Local and state-level collaborative resource development: Enhancing service array capacity, with special attention to children with medical complexities and dual diagnoses Shared decision making and collaboration: More clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of multiple case managers (child welfare and waiver support coordinators) along with other child serving agencies. Expectations on speed of systems Transition to adulthood: Ensuring smooth transition as children / youth age out of child welfare system

13 Considering the differences between the organizational perspectives of APD, the larger developmental disabilities system, and DCF/CBCs and the larger child welfare system… How can these systems collaborate to consistently meet the needs and ongoing challenges of mutual system children / youth? Question for discussion:

Shared funding to draw Medicaid match -Collaborative resource development with specialty service providers at local level based on identified needs Shared decision-making and collaboration / transition to adulthood: -Statewide memorandum of understanding for role and expectation clarification coupled with ongoing training and collaboration -The conceptual similarities of basic practice models: Establish key points of contact / working protocols / cross-training and mentoring opportunities to advance best-practice approaches -Ongoing data-sharing - How do we establish a policy and infrastructural framework that provides support while allowing for individuality of case practice?
