 Autism Spectrum System of Care Task Force
Children Medical Services in the Panhandle invites you to attend our first Autism Spectrum System of Care Taskforce meeting for the 4 county areas.

So we are asking you to come to this first meeting for several reasons. 1. To help us determine what we have available in each of our counties to help these children and their families. 2. To help us determine what services we still need to help these children and their families. 3. How can we work in a collaborative effort to ensure that we can provide the most comprehensive services to parents as easily as possible.

Meetings will be held every fourth Friday of the month thru 2-2018.

 Area 09 Family Care Council Monthly Meeting
Area 15 Family Care Council Monthly Meeting
The mission of the Family Care Councils is to advocate, educate, and empower individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, partnering with the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), to bring quality services to individuals for dignity and choice.

The Family Care Councils (FCCs) are groups of volunteers who advocate for people with developmental disabilities and their families. In 1993, the Florida Legislature created the FCCs (Chapter 393.502, Florida Statutes) in each service area of APD to advise the agency, develop a plan for the delivery of family support services within the local area, and monitor the implementation and effectiveness of services and supports provided under the plan.

 Area 09 Family Care Council Monthly Meeting
Area 15 Family Care Council Monthly Meeting
The mission of the Family Care Councils is to advocate, educate, and empower individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, partnering with the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), to bring quality services to individuals for dignity and choice.

The Family Care Councils (FCCs) are groups of volunteers who advocate for people with developmental disabilities and their families. In 1993, the Florida Legislature created the FCCs (Chapter 393.502, Florida Statutes) in each service area of APD to advise the agency, develop a plan for the delivery of family support services within the local area, and monitor the implementation and effectiveness of services and supports provided under the plan.
