We’re pleased to announce that The Moore Center reached its goal of raising $200,000 for The 21st Annual Garden Party Honoring Ellie and David Cochran!
As of today, the total amount raised was $201,062! We could not have achieved this without the support of our sponsors, individual donors, event attendees, Board, vendors, staff and volunteers –and as such we extend a very heartfelt thank you to all who participated in various ways to help make the event a success.
A very special thank you to our photographer, John Beaudin, who so generously donates his time and has been with us since the Garden Party’s inception! Below please find a link to photos from the evening. View pictures from the event here.
Now Hiring - We'll Train You To Become a Direct Support Professional!
A Direct Support Professional (DSP) is a coach, mentor and teacher. They help individuals with intellectual disabilities, like autism & Down syndrome, develop the skills needed to integrate into the community and pursue opportunities for employment, improving their overall quality of life.
We’re very proud of the important work we are doing with the Manchester NH Police to collaborate on a year-long training project focusing on police interaction with people with autism and other developmental disabilities.
The initial ‘Train the Trainer’ session is complete, and we’ll be providing additional support in the development of practical actions that lead to increased sensitivity and de-escalation techniques.
As you know, understanding and supporting every client’s rights is everyone’s responsibility, and one that we take very seriously. It has come to our attention that there are currently issues with the BDS complaint call line, making it difficult to get through.
If you’re finding that you cannot get through, please send the complaint information directly to Erica Ross-Skianes, either by email Erica.M.Ross-Skianes@dhhs.nh.gov or phone (603-271-5129).
Now available through Telehealth, using either phone or video conferencing.
Concerned about how your child is talking, moving, or behaving? Wondering if your child is meeting their developmental milestones? We Can Help!
Early intervention is CRITICAL for these children, and beginning early enhances the chances for a more positive result. If you feel that your infant or toddler (aged birth through two) may have developmental issues, you can request a free evaluation.
If you have a family member who receives services through the Developmental Service System of Area Agencies you may have you heard about the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that NH is under, related to the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).
The three 1915 (c) waivers affected by this CAP are Developmental Services, Acquired Brain Disorder, and Children’s In-Home Services.
The compliance issues addressed in the CAP focus on conflict of interest between case management and direct service delivery; and compliance with Medicaid billing rules, which allow providers to bill directly to the State.
