According to Maryland's Department Of Health, families of autistic children who participate in the self-directed model can access the support they need via consultations or case management. This enables them to address specific challenges related to autism, such as sensory sensitivities, communication barriers, and behavioral strategies.

The self-directed model offers flexibility in choosing the types of services and providers. You can now select nurses or caregivers who are specifically trained in autism care and who are the best fit for your child’s personality and needs.

Options for every situation

CHES offers you two options. The first, nursing consultation, consists of a comprehensive patient assessment, performing a review using the High-Risk Screening Tool (HRST), developing healthcare routines, finding community resources, and connecting you with doctors. This option also includes up to four patient visits per year.

The second option is nursing case management and delegation, which involves a nursing assessment, HRST reviews, developing a care plan, and training staff to execute it. It also includes in-person visits from an RN every 45 days and on-call assistance during business hours or anytime caregivers are working.

You can pick a care option based on your child's HRST level. Nursing consultations are appropriate for HRST levels below three, while HRST levels above three may require nursing case management and delegation.
