Children’s services omnibus: wave 3

The first phase of the survey, prior to wave 1, involved a nomination stage in July 2016. During this stage the Director of Children’s Services (DCS) for each LA was invited to nominate a single point of contact in their authority to be responsible for the survey. This approach was successful in obtaining contact details for a nominated point of contact for every higher tier Local Authority in England. In many cases DCSs opted to remain responsible for the survey in their LA, either nominating themselves or their PA to be the point of first contact. In some LAs DCSs nominated other points of contact such as Group Managers, Service Directors and Data and Performance Officers. This sample was used for wave 1 and updated via telephone and email reminders for waves 2 and 3.

Considerations for Redesign of the California Children s Services (CCS) Program

Considerations for Redesign of the California Children s Services (CCS) Program

2. Consider completely “carving-out” children with complex needs entirely from their health plan and create a comprehensive care model for these children. The current carve-out creates additional administrative expense, appears to shift costs from managed care to the CCS program, and often puts providers and families in the middle. The options for a comprehensive model, such as those described in this paper, should be vetted with stakeholders to develop a system capable of meeting the needs of the whole child. Consider changes to the CCS carve-out for children in NICUs to limit the carve- out to newborns with other CCS qualifying conditions. Further, review whether care for children with time-limited or single system conditions can best be addressed within existing Medi-Cal or Healthy Families health plans (ending the carve-out for these children) or by including completely carving-out these children into a new CCS system. Final recommendations on the structure of the carve-out cannot be completed without more thorough data analysis on cost, conditions, utilization, and quality indicators. 3. Any redesign effort should consider all three funding sources, CCS Medi-Cal, CCS

3.01. Autism Services and Supports for Children. Chapter 3 Section. Background. Ministry of Children and Youth Services

In 2011 the Ministry of Children and Youth Services and the Ministry of Community and Social Services introduced a transition planning framework for young people with developmental disabilities and indicated that planning is to begin early. In December 2012, the Ministry’s regional offices implemented protocols to formalize transi- tion planning responsibilities between organiza- tions funded by either the Ministry of Children and Youth Services or the Ministry of Community and Social Services, and to help establish expectations for a more systematic, co-ordinated and transpar- ent approach to transition planning for youth with developmental disabilities. In January 2013, the initiative was expanded to include the Ministry of Education with the intent to help support smooth transitions from secondary school to adult develop- mental services, further education, employment, participation in life activities and community living. The inclusion of the Ministry of Education in the transition planning process required revising the recently implemented protocols. The protocols took effect at the start of the 2013/14 school year, after our audit fieldwork had been completed. The agen- cies are expected to implement transition planning for youth as part of their existing program funding. We noted the following concerns with the transi- tion planning process:

Wave 3: Hispanic Millennials and Financial Services

Wave 3: Hispanic Millennials and Financial Services

Few studies conduct research into the notable and vast contrasts between U.S. Born Hispanic Millennials and Foreign-born Hispanic Millennials. In reality, there is a clear difference in terms of attitudes and acculturation as it relates to financial services. Foreign-born Hispanic Millennials adhere more to cultural norms than U.S. Born Hispanic Millennials, who in some cases align with the attitudes of non-Hispanic Millennials.

Children and young people's participation in organised sport : omnibus survey

This report sets out the results for each of the three key measures of participation from data collected between March 2008 and February 2009. Where appropriate, results have been analysed by wave and by demographic sub-groups such as gender, age or region. It is advised that some degree of caution is applied when interpreting these results as they are essentially a snap shot of participation in sport for a week during each month, and do not account for participation in every week during the year. Readers should be aware of the following:

Omnibus survey of pupils and their parents or carers: wave 5: Research report: March 2019

Omnibus survey of pupils and their parents or carers: wave 5: Research report: March 2019

Where more serious mental health problems occur, schools and colleges should expect the pupil and their family to be supported by Children’s and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS), run by NHS. These organisations should support and work alongside the existing role that schools and colleges already have. This role can include: activities that raise awareness of good mental health, recognising emerging issues as early and accurately as possible, providing early support for emerging problems or those with less severe issues, and working effectively with health services to provide swift access or referrals to specialist support and treatment. The Department for Education (DfE) has committed to supporting schools ‘to promote good mental wellbeing in children, to provide a supportive environment for those experiencing problems, and to secure access to more specialist help for those who need it’. 24

STATE OF MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES DIVISION OF FAMILY AND CHILDREN S SERVICES. Section G: Adoption Policy

 Insurance – DFCS encourages the adoptive family to apply for health insurance once the child is placed in an adoptive placement. Insurance companies have varying policies about insuring a child prior to completion of adoption. Upon request, the Adoption Unit will supply a statement to adoptive parents for insurance purposes. The Adoption Placement Agreement is often accepted by insurance companies. Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act 1993 guarantees adopted children the same access to health insurance as birth children. Children are covered at the time of placement and for pre-existing conditions. If a child is on Medicaid and private insurance, the private insurance must be listed as Primary and Medicaid as Secondary.

California Children s Services Program Analysis. Final Report

California Children s Services Program Analysis. Final Report

 A large proportion of the children appeared to be highly vulnerable with serious medical conditions. Most of the children had either Medi-Cal or Healthy Families eligibility; among children age < 1 one year the leading eligible diagnoses were cardiac and NICU- related conditions; for older children it was neurology and ENT. Thirty-six percent of infants had at least one hospitalization in the year. Nine percent had two or more hospitalizations; 16% had subsequent hospitalizations occurring within one week. 48% and 55% of readmissions among children age < 1 year and age >= 1 year respectively, occurred within 30 days of discharge. During the year, 6% of children age < 1 year and 17% of children age >= 1 year had four or more readmissions within 30 days of a discharge (a detailed review of these discharges does not suggest a coding error). For children age < 1 year, most of the readmissions within 30 days were for a different diagnoses compared to the reason for the previous hospitalization. For older children, most of the readmissions were for the same diagnoses.
