Have you tried to apply for IHSS and or protective supervision for your Autistic child to be their parent provider and was denied over the phone without even recieving an inhome assesment? Or if you did receive and inhome assesment were you still denied? If so im interested in 1. if denied over the phone what was the social workers excuse and 2. If denied after inhome assesment what was the reason. Also if you were not denied were you given the least amount of hours possible even though you know your autisitc needs more hours and protective supervision?
I am asking this question because this is what happend to me. I knew what they were doing was wrong and they were not following regulations. I fought them and won my case with the help of My Advocate. So I am wondering if this has happend to other parents or family members. If this has happend to you and you feel they too did not follow regulations I can help you. For example I was told over the phone my child does not qualify due to his age and it is my responsibilty as his mother. This is against regulation, no child or adult can be denied due to age and cant be denied over the phone, there must be an inhome assesment done. They will give you an excuse over the phone and tell you, you dont qualify then say that you withdrew your app. When in reality they told you that you cant receive services.
I live in Merced Ca. and Im just looking to help other parents get the services and help their children deserve. Even if you dont live in Merced I am availble to help and advise you no matter what part of Ca you live in by email or phone. I can even put you in contact with my Advocate that specializes in representing parents of autistic children and helping them get the hours they are intitled to (He is great). If you do live in Merced or the central valley (modesto, fresno, los banos etc..) I can possibly meet with you and let you know if you have a case and help you get your paper work together.
Very Important: If you have and assesment coming up PLease make sure you have someone there with you as a witness to the assesment DONT DO IT ALONE. Also make sure you have all the paper work you need. Email me if you dont know what you need also If you live in merced and want my help with the assesment and paper work email me. We would have to meet first so I can meet with you and your child to let you know if you have a case. I have to make sure I am only helping with legit cases. Good Luck to all of you and fight the good fight for your kids. Email me here on Cafe mom and we can go from there.Answer Question
