Frequently asked Questions

Did they disable your child?

We can help you. We imagine so many doubts you will have at this point, but we will let you know what your rights are and what are the doors you will need to knock on.

Did they change your Medicaid to HMO?

If they changed it without consulting you about insurance, here we will guide you how to ask for your rights to a legal insurance that corresponds to you if you qualify.

Is your child on legal age and you do not have legal guardianship? 

Your child reaches the age of majority, we have lawyers that we can refer you to make you guardian and also the assistance of the Government.

Did they always deny you helps? 

Most of the time they deny us help, but for a closed door we help you open others and guide you.

A child who is disabled may depend on your help for a lifetime. If you are a parent, caregiver, or representative of a child younger than age 18 who has a disability, your child may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments.

How your child plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about his or her development. Check the milestones your child has reached by 2 months. Take this with you and talk with your child’s doctor at every well-child visit about the milestones your child has reached and what to expect next. Tell your child’s doctor or nurse if you notice any of these signs of possible developmental delay and ask for a developmental screening.
