Support for your child through every phase of life
Caring for a child with a disability can be an overwhelming experience. In reality, there are many resources available, but finding and accessing resources that meet your loved one’s unique needs is often a challenge. Pine Tree Society’s case managers are here to help. Our case managers are there to listen, guide and support you.
Develop plan for YOUR child
No two children are alike. No two families are alike. We take the time to get to know your child and your family. We take the time to understand strengths and challenges and uncover how we can help. Together, we create a plan of action.
Do you ever feel like it’s a game of information overload? We understand. That is why we work to sift through information and drill down, providing you with what you need to know. We work to save your time – because your time is precious.
Connection to services
The process of identifying and securing services can be overwhelming. Let us be your link. We will partner with you to complete applications, connect you to the right service providers like physicians, specialists, counselors, occupational, physical and speech therapists, engage the right in-home support and communicate with MaineCare on your behalf. We believe in the power of the outdoors, being active and socially connected so we work to connect your child to services that check these boxes to positively impact their well-being.
Monitoring established services
Your case manager is there to observe your child in his or her classroom, social group and recreational activity which provides first-hand information about your child’s strengths and needs. We are available to attend IEP meetings, medical and health appointments to listen, partner and advocate for your child.
Staying in touch with other providers is critical, but coordinating meetings can be time consuming. That is another way we can help. We are happy to take the lead in coordinating meetings with your child’s providers and attend with you to discuss progress, goals and problem solve together.
Transitions are stressful. Whether it is early intervention to preschool or from high school to adulthood. Our case managers are there to guide you through the process. We will work with you well before the transition to ensure that all of the critical pieces are in place to support the success of your child.
