Service Coordination is an important support in the life of a child with a developmental disability and his or her family. Under Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC), parents and family members are recognized as valuable participants in their child's service coordination program. As a valuable participant, it is important that family members are well informed about how MSC works and their rights under the program. That is what this training is all about. By being informed, you and your child's service coordinator can become partners in advocating for and gaining access to necessary supports and services for your child.
