Check out AMCHP's new issue brief focused on Family Navigation implementation strategies in Title V and community-based programs!

The content in this issue brief was compiled from an environmental scan AMCHP conducted of Title V family navigation activities. The results revealed that 39 states and other jurisdictions (e.g. territories) are using family navigation strategies to address priority needs related to serving CYSHCN and their families.  

AMCHP also conducted case studies with states to highlight how family navigation has improved care for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Developmental Disabilities (DD). In these case studies, the reader will learn additional details of different state and jurisdiction implementation strategies such as access to care through referrals, timely diagnosis and feedback, and entry into high-quality, coordinated care across systems for children with ASD and other DD. See for yourself how this issue brief can provide you with new family navigation strategies. To access the issue brief, click here or click on the link above.
