Judith McGuinness

Medical Advocacy includes all aspects of the child’s health including: well visits, immunizations, assessments, dental, if the child has a chronic medical issue, such as a mental illness, developmental delay, asthma, diabetes, and vision assessments.

I would speak to bio parents, resource parents and any medical professionals the child has had contact with, including possibly the school nurse. I would ask any questions necessary to provide a full picture of the child’s health to the court, including trying to fill in gaps where there is no medical history.
