{Check Box} Any important medical records for your child and their patient ID numbers from doctor’s office visits and/or hospitalizations, if they’re accessible.

{Check Box} Any medications your child takes.

{Check Box} Your child’s medical assistance number, if they have one.

{Check Box} Contact information for any social service programs or caseworkers who have worked with your child. 

{Check Box} Any records from the child’s Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) for early intervention services or Individualized Education Program (IEP) for special education services.
