Making a difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities for over 50 years.

Children’s Case Management

Children’s Case Management helps parents of children from birth to 21 years of age who have intellectual disabilities, mental health disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or other developmental delays/disabilities locate and access necessary services and supports for their children.

With the family, the Case Manager identifies the child’s strengths and needs, develops and coordinates a plan of care tailored to the child, connects families to services and supports, and helps ensure that the child’s needs are being met.

You have given a little boy wings to fly.

“Waban has played a key role in turning my son’s life around. When Andy entered Waban at three-and-a-half, his prospects for a normal life were very dim. Waban sparked a curiosity and fueled a fire in Andy. The curriculum, speech, occupational, and physical therapy were important in his development, but the integral elements were the teacher and the teacher’s assistants who showered Andy with love and encouragement. You have fostered in him an unbridled curiosity for life, a realization that there is progress if you work hard enough and have a true understanding of compassion. You have given a little boy wings to fly.”
