Please join Danielle Mazza, Director of Medicaid Service Coordination at Wildwood Programs and John Dutcher, Benefits Advisement Specialist at the Capital District Center for Independence, Inc. for an overview on social security and Medicaid benefits. What are the differences between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and when and how does one apply for these financial benefits? Is your child eligible for Medicaid – what type? Danielle and John will help to answer these questions and assist with understanding the eligibility criteria for these benefits.

An Important Message From the Executive Director

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Families and Friends:

 

We are delighted to announce that a bill that would authorize community-based programs to provide supports, services and resources for individuals with learning disabilities to re-engage with school or adult education has been introduced in the New York State Assembly! The bill was introduced by Catherine Nolan (http://assembly.state.ny.us/mem/Catherine-Nolan/), chair of the Assembly Education Committee. If passed, the bill would establish a short-term program that would authorize agencies including Wildwood to provide teens and adults with instruction, coaching and other services necessary to succeed in school, adult education programs or trade schools.

 

Wildwood, the Learning Disabilities Association of NYS and other affiliated agencies have been advocating for this funding for years. Individuals with learning disabilities who receive relevant educational support before they enter the workforce have a greater chance of becoming confident, successful employees and more active community members. They are also less likely to rely on public assistance and related services. State funding for this support will enable us to grow our services and benefit many additional eligible individuals.

 

We need your help to make this bill a law! Please email your legislator expressing your support for its quick passage. You may compose your own message, or rewrite or cut and paste the memo of support from the Learning Disabilities Association of New York State. Find this memo at http://www.ldanys.org.

Thank you for your continued support of Wildwood and the individuals and families we serve!
