Guide Examines Family Support Services

The Texas Center for Disability Studies at The University of Texas at Austin has produced a new guide on “Understanding Family Support and Opening Doors to the Future.”  The 26-page guide was created as a resource for parents of children living in institutions in Texas or at extreme risk of placement; however, it contains information valuable to broader audience.  For example, the guide has lists of the state’s seven Medicaid Waivers, other state-administered community care programs, parent groups, state agencies and state disability advocacy organizations.  There is also information on natural supports, formal supports, the importance of living in a family, Medicaid, and how to navigate the service system.  Funding for the guide was provided by The Trull Foundation of Palacios, Texas.  The guide is online at
