The Family Navigator Program empowers parents and caregivers to be more involved in health care decisions concerning children with special needs. The goal of the Family Navigator Program is to foster an increased understanding of medical, mental health, and educational needs of young children and to link families with the services they need.

The Family Navigator Program provides the following services:
  • Screen children for signs of developmental delays
  • Screen children for risk factors of autism spectrum disorders
  • Provide parents with development, parenting, diagnostic, and social-emotional education
  • Provide families with referral options, follow up services, and access to the SE Ohio Interdisciplinary Assessment Team, a monthly, multi-disciplinary clinic partnering local service providers with development and ASD specialists from Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Family Navigator is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Grant - Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health)
