Like many parents and guardians, Mingo was confused about the system and how to get started. What made it even more difficult for him was the language barrier. He is a Spanish speaker and has had trouble in the past understanding most of the information and resources regarding his situation. Luckily he called the right place.
Q: Why did you call FHF?
A: My daughter was having problems at school after receiving a diagnosis of Autism. I wanted to receive help but did not know where to go, so I talked to my daughter’s pediatrician who recommended I call your office.
Q: How will you use the information and support you were given?
A: I will use this information by immediately starting to get my daughter the services she needs. Thanks to you I now know about resources I did not know are available for her.
Q: How will this information and support improve your life or the life of your child?
A: This information will help my daughter’s life by allowing her to receive the services she is entitled to like the waiver services. I also received a list of ABA therapists that has been very useful to help us find a therapist in dealing with her behavior at home and at school.
Q: Anything else you would like to share?
A: Yes, I am very grateful that this organization exists. I am excited to know about everything that is available for my daughter.
