K.W. v. Armstrong Update: in court AGAIN this Tuesday (1/17/22) — OurHealthandWelfare.org 01/13/2023

K.W. v. Armstrong Update: in court AGAIN this Tuesday (1/17/22) — OurHealthandWelfare.org

For parents of adults with developmental disabilities or those who are soon to be adults:

The lawyers in the K.W. v. Armstrong lawsuit will be meeting with the judge once again this Tuesday, January 17, 2023, at 2:30 pm MT / 1:30 pm PT.

The Judge met with the lawyers about a month ago, in late November 2022. He said he wanted to hear from them again soon about what should happen next in the case.

The two sides filed a “status report” about the case this week.

Medicaid says it wants to have another year before it starts the new assessment and budget system. The lawyers who represent people who get Medicaid say we have already waited too long. They say that the new system looks like it could have problems, too.

This Tuesday 1/17/2023 at 2:30 pm MT / 1:30 pm PT, the lawyers for both sides will advocate to the Judge about what should happen next. You can listen in by phone only

Read more and find out how to listen by phone. You are not allowed to record the hearing. You can just listen to it.

What can early childhood education look like?

Early childhood education includes a variety of activities that are designed to encourage children's cognitive and social development before entering kindergarten.

The Zero to Three Foundation considers these skills the most critical for young children to achieve:
Language and literacy:
Thinking
Self-control
Self-confidence

Examples:
- Toddler playing with colorful building blocks.
- Outdoor play with friends.
- Coloring and/or painting.
