Family Leadership Resources Available in All States for Children and Youth With Special Healthcare Needs

NICHQ partners with Family Voices, a national organization aiming to achieve family-centered care for all children and youth with special healthcare needs and/or disabilities (CYSHCN). 

Through Family Voices, resources are available for families to connect with family leadership in their state, including Family to Family Health Information Centers (F2F HICs).  F2F HICs are nonprofit family-run organizations that assist families of CYSHCN and the professionals who serve them.  As of June 2009, all states will have F2F HICs.

F2F HICs are uniquely able to help other families because they are staffed by family members who have first-hand experience negotiating the maze of health care services and programs for CYSHCN. 

To download a brochure with your states F2F HIC contact information visit the Family Voices Catalog.

Resources to Develop and Expand ADHD Management: Tools for Parents

Following the 2001 Learning Collaborative on ADHD, NICHQ, in conjunction with North Carolina's Center for Child Health Improvement and the American Academy of Pediatrics, developed "Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians." This toolkit bears the results of NICHQ applying sound principles of chronic care management to ADHD cases—namely, involving families in a total care program, tracking the results of our studies, using evidence as the basis for establishing guidelines and coordinating care among various caregivers.

Access "Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians" and receive Parent Information and Support.
