November ASNCOC Events

These are the November events hosted by the Autism Society of NC Orange Chatham chapter (ASNCOC):

Coffee Gathering: Thursday, November 8th from 10 - 11 am

Join us at the Caribou Coffee on the corner of Franklin and Estes Sts. for coffee and conversation!

The coffee gatherings are an informal place for parents, grandparents, and others who care about someone with ASD to get together and chat. They are always fun, and are a great way to make connections.

Chapter Meeting: Tuesday, November 13th from 7 - 9 pm

Extraordinary Ventures, 200 South Elliott Rd. (across from Whole Foods), Chapel Hill

Topic: Understanding & Accessing Social Services: The Innovations Medicaid Waiver (formerly known as the CAP I/DD waiver)

Presenters: Kerri Erb, ASNC Senior Director of Quality & Programs
Jennifer Mahan, ASNC Director of Government Relations
Larry Swabe, Regional Consumer Affairs Manager for Cardinal Innovations Heathcare Solutions (formerly known as PBH, the organization that oversees the Innovations waiver for Orange, Chatham, and Person counties)

Learn about this VERY important topic for any parent who has a child with special needs. The presentation will include an overview of the Medicaid waiver program in NC, who may be eligible, how to apply for services, and an explanation of changes to the program under the new managed care system.

Everyone is welcome at the chapter meetings - please plan to attend, whether you currently receive waiver services, are on the waiting list, or have not yet applied. There will be some time for Q&A at the end.

Free childcare is provided for the chapter meetings by Autism Outreach from UNC. Please R.s.v.p. to asncoc@yahoogroups.com if bringing a child.
