The Arc of Tippecanoe County is hosting the Tippecanoe County Resource fair and has invited The Arc of Indiana to exhibit. The Arc Advocacy Network will have information about Medicaid Waivers, Vocational Rehabilitation Services, guardianship and alternatives, Special Needs Trusts, the Erskine Green Training Institute, and a variety of other topics available for families and self-advocates.
The Arc Advocacy Network will explain Social Security disability programs, the process Social Security uses to make a disability determination, and steps families can take to make this process easier.
The Arc Advocacy Network will discuss guardianship, alternatives to guardianship, and Supported Decision Making to help families understand their options in this area.
The Arc Advocacy Network will explain Medicaid Waivers and answer questions about waivers. We will have Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) waiver applications available and help families fill out those applications.
