Our county case mgr spoke to her. There are no additional funds for services for Wee by going thru this committee. It is strictly for brainstorming with outside heads, and offering services from groups that one may not know about. Since we are already in over half of these organizations, and wouldn't likely be candidates for the others (child services, drug and alcohol abuse, etc) there's really nothing to be gained. The only service that we could get that we don't have is targeted case management, and we don't qualify because we aren't on Medicaid. They do accept private pay, but not insurance, but there is still a list 3 miles long, and folks on Medicaid get priority. We've been on the list for it for 3 years...but it boils down to, unless I get Wee on Medicaid, he'll never get that service - he'll never get high enough on the list. This committee can't change that, either. She said we could invite a rep from the next district's public school, and she speculates that this person would probably look at Wee's list of diagnosis'es and say "and what are you doing to address his bi-polar? His Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)? His sensory issues?" etc...so we might get some backing that the school needs to step up, but this board has no authority to even talk about alternative placement or real solutions. But her honest feeling was that this was a stall tactic on the part of the district or a desperate grasp at straws.
