Hello everyone, My colleague Kim Hager and I are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions (including developmental diagnoses), caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. The study was approved by the IRB and survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it. English survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQFSMVV Spanish survey:https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/2DXD5TX Thank you and we appreciate all your help

Hello everyone-- does anyone have experience with McLean Bible Church Tysons Access program-- specifically their Friday Night Respite (every 3rd Friday of the month)? Wondering if this would be fun for my 5 year old daughter (Ds) and 3 year old (NT) son.
We had our daughter's 3-year sign-off meeting last week and it was recommended we redo some of the testing that was last done 3 years ago and also some we didn't do then as we had just adopted her from China at almost 5 years old and her language was still developing then. Her IEP team would like to collect updated academic, social-emotional, behavioral, speech/language, cognitive, occupational therapy, and social history assessment information to "best determine her educational needs and special education identification." I have heard in the past that some parents choose not to consent to any testing for various reasons and I would like to know why parents choose against testing. To give some background information, Annie spent the first 5 years of her life in a Chinese orphanage with no education and she was non-verbal when we adopted her. Her language has since developed well all things considered, but she still has a long way to go. Annie cannot read, write, do math, etc. After three years she still has trouble writing her name. Thank you all for your input!
