I received a phone call this morning from the care coordinator for the Katie Beckett application that I submitted for difficult child. Apparently difficult child at this point doesn't have the "level of care" that is required to get the waiver. I have to contact a state regional center here that needs to come out and assess him. If they determine that he has a level of care for their services then, the Katie Beckett waiver app will get pushed through. Here's the potential problem: this regional center support people with developmental disabilities in their efforts to live, work, and recreate in the community. So in otherwords, difficult child has to have some sort of developmental element to his issues. I don't know about that. I guess I will just have to call them and arrange the appointment and go from there.
