|SESSION:||Making A Difference In A Changing World: Invent The Future!|
|SPEAKER:||Derrick F. Dufresne, President, CRA Consulting, Inc.|
Almost every prediction regarding the limitations of people with disabilities for the last 100 years has been proven dead wrong. First, the experts said people with disabilities wouldn’t live very long. Then they couldn’t learn or recover and then they couldn't work. And on and on it has gone.
People with disabilities don’t want us to be pilots, but rather navigators that assist in helping them to get a life-not a program. The problem is that many professionals see the world through the prism of what has been, not what could be. This limits options, possibilities, and potential.
This presentation will challenge participants to create “do-search” to create the research and the data that can guide services and supports –Practice-Based Evidence. The role of staff in this important transformation is critical.
There are different challenges for individuals with various types of disabilities. This applies especially to people with mental health challenges who can tell us clearly what they want, and it may not be what we think they need.
We need to be inventing, not preventing, desirable futures for people with disabilities.
|SESSION:||Medicaid Transformation And The 1115 Waiver|
|SPEAKER:||Debra Farrington, Senior Program Manager, Division of Health Benefits|
|DESCRIPTION:||This session will cover the basics of the 1115 waiver, legislation that supports the waiver, how this waiver differs from the 1915(b)(c) waiver, how the behavioral health world as we know it today may fit into the new waiver, and what preparations are underway to ensure the implementation of the new waiver with the physical health world including included and excluded populations.|
